The recycling bin may no longer be the sole destination for your plastic bottles thanks to this enlightening concept by designers Lie Zhong-Fa, Lee Sang-Bong & Ji Jung-Ah. The + (Plus) Conjunctive Flash Light doubles as a regular torch AND a lamp for illuminating your campsite, or as the designers suggest, your living room.
The torch is made of a flexible material that can be inserted into the mouth of a plastic bottle to create a lantern-like effect. And to give you complete flexibility, the handle can be bent into a hook, allowing you to hang the light wherever you want.
The product was a finalist in the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) awards in the student category.
