Enrique is product designer and works at the design Studio ACdO (Álvaro Catalán de Ocón), located in Madrid. One of the most inspiring works of ACdO is the light known as PET LAMP. The independent project started in Colombia in 2011 (driven by Coca Cola). Indigenous Colombian artisans used woven palm tree fibers and wrapped them around plastic bottles which led to the creation of beautiful, colorful lamps. Since then the project moved to Chile, Ethiopia and Japan, always working with indigenous communities. Artisans apply the traditional techniques from their local region in a new manner. _Text and Photos via PET LAMP and ACdO.
