Have someone on your holiday gift list that has a style that trends retro-kitsch? This radio/telephone hybrid lamp (above) may be the perfect office addition to your favorite funky-so-and so’s home office or loft. The “Talk Radio Lamp” is the creation of Tyagi Schwartz and his Dog Tag Designs.
Dog Tag Designs specializes in repurposing upcycled objects into functional object art. Each item is ‘dog tagged’ noting the location it was discovered (provenance), the date it was transformed, and its working title.
Perhaps this will inspire you to hit the basement, garage or attic in search of the raw materials for your own upcycled DIY creation.
