There are some rules of fashion that should never be broken: Scrunchies should never be worn outside the comfort of your home, pajama pants as office attire are undeniably UNacceptable and horizontal stripes are an absolute no no. Okay, so maybe that last rule of thumb is a bit more of the bendable kind…but only (we repeat ONLY) if you’re a Wunderwurks lamp and your lovely little name is Jupiter. Made entirely from EVA (a fully recyclable material), this modern lady isn’t afraid to flaunt her handmade shade wherever she goes. Plus Wunderwurks makes sure to keep waste to an absolute minimum by recycling any extra materials that pop up during the production process, re-melting scraps and even using excess adhesive to seal shipping boxes. And all the effort, well, it’s certainly worth it. Because she sure does light up a room, doesn’t she?
