The vinyl/turntable format is rapidly dying in the music world. DJs and even loyal users of the classic gramophone disc are starting to throw their historic collections away after discovering the convenience of using CDs and downloading MP3s. PolyLamps are a series of ideas based around re-using/re-purposing vinyl records and turning them into a contemporary light source that can be wall mounted or just used as a lampshade.PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a thermo-plastic and is well recognised for its manufacturability and heat shaping properties. PolyLamps use these properties to make exciting new shapes that provide a wide range of light distributions, experimenting with colour reflection, and shadow techniques.Available in a range of colours and designs. Designs are created purely by hand, cutting, heating, moulding and shaping using ovens and strip heaters. Costs and limitations are dependent on the extent of manufacturing processes, resources components and time taken to manufacture.
