Ordinary Yogurt Jars Transformed Into Beautiful Light Fixture

Aidia Studio, an architecture and design firm founded by Rolando Rodriguez-Leal and Natalia Wrzask, has entered this year’s Beijing Design Week with its innovative installation titled Milkywave. The piece consists of 1,664 ceramic yogurt bottles that have been repurposed as a multi-story hanging light fixture. Each container is suspended from the ceiling of its site-specific venue (in this case, an old bicycle factory) and illuminated from within. The translucency of each tiny jug allows for it to light up, though it is the unified entity, the installation as a whole, that significantly brightens a room.

The types of yogurt jars used in the installation are common in Beijing as they litter the streets amidst a variety of other discarded bottles. The project’s intention is to present a beautiful, functional, and efficient piece of work that draws attention to the power of reuse. The team behind the work says, “[W]e celebrate the re-use of mass produced objects as core components for the design of new systems and configurations.”
