Speed Light

June 8, 2011

Melbourne designer Brett Coelho transforms the ubiquitous road sign into a contemporary pendant light.

The Speed Light, designed by Brett Coelho, is a pendant light made from “legally collected” and recycled street signs.

The shades are water-jet cut and hand-folded into shape, bringing fragments of the urban landscape into an interior environment. The lights are a celebration of both the graphics and the materials of the ubiquitous road sign.

The piece is intended as a celebration of the ordinary, transforming the everyday into something completely different. The shades are enamel sprayed on the inside and polyurethane sealed, protecting the original surface of the street sign on the outside. Available in small and large through Tongue and Groove Interiors.
