animal farm

Animal Farm began when the designer recognizes the effigies of animals in the forms of wine bottles, preserve jars, and other glassware.

By Indian designer Nishi Chauhan.

Animal Farm is part of a continuing series of explorations centered around the twin themes of craft revival and the repurposing of used objects. This first set of upcycled bottle lamps visualize six animal forms featuring the wood and lac turnery craft of Channapatna in Karnataka, India. With minimal intervention from the designer and the craftsman, objects that would otherwise have met uninteresting ends in the recycling chain have been born again as playful, usable products.
