Coffee ground table lamps

Spanish designer Raul Lauri created these lights with recycled coffee ground through a unique technique that recycle it into a composite solid material. This is an interesting way to gives a second life to coffee grounds, it’s 100% natural, biodegradable and renewable and are still conserving its color and texture !

    This is a GREAT idea…wish I knew how to replicate it. I use Nespresso capsules for jewelry, and never know what to do with all the coffee grounds I have to clean out of them!!!

    Coffee grounds are a very plentiful material in urban citiies. This is a great demonstration application. I am very interested in using this material as structural panels in a coffee roaster I am working on. Contact me if interested :)

    I used to make jewelery years ago by mixing dry peat moss or potting with carpenters glue to make a “clay”that air dried solid. I imagine you could do the same with coffee grounds.
