Ten-Second Takeaway

Need some lighting? We found a lamp maker who makes lamps out of cassettes – and pretty much any other raw material – and here’s why we’re ordering.

What Is It?

We tracked down Omkar Amrite, an advertising professional by the day and cool lamp maker by night after we spotted a cassette lamp made by him. He makes them in two sizes – 1 ft {INR 1,700} and 4 ft. {INR 7,000}. So, if you want a tower of nostalgia in your room, call him up and order. He says he can make a lamp out of pretty much everything. Think a cheese grater can be turned into one? Brainstorm with him and he might get it done.

A tiffin/dabba lamp, a beer glass lamp or a big bulb lamp – he’s pretty much into everything. The cost of the lamp will vary according to the materials and the effort needed to make it.

So, We’re Thinking…

With our love for all things customised, it makes for a great gifting option. Challenge a friend for an NBA game? Get a basketball hoop lamp made.Or just place it your room for that added cool factor. Don’t forget to also check out this lamp inspired by Mumbai’s dabbawallas.

#LBBTip: He takes orders on call and the lamp will need to be picked up from him in Matunga West. For people ordering out of Mumbai, he’ll courier it to you {the courier charges will need to be borne by you}.
