Literally! Tatiana Guimarães has given a new meaning to reusing packaging with her Ciclus wine bottle packaging that transforms from a box to a lamp.

The Brazilian designer wanted to extend the life cycle of wine packaging and I must agree that she found a very creative way.  The lamp is beautiful and would make that house warming gift bottle last a little longer.  I am not sure everyone who buys a wine bottle needs a new lamp so there is some excess. However, it another good start to the conversation on our packaging along with the hp laptops that are packed in bags. YES, we can package things better.

The compact florescent bulb is included and the directions are printed on the box eliminating the need for an extra slip of paper! Did I mention that these would make great client Christmas gifts?
