JAR – reclaimed pickle jar

The A(dd)Y(our)O(wn) lighting range gives everyone the chance to be part designer, part manufacturer. Made from rebar and natural rubber, the lights are designed without lampshades to encourage the re-use and re-cycle of everyday objects from garden, house or street. For Roomservice Design Gallery Ryan fitted the lights with a series of iconic Spanish objects salvaged in the streets of Barcelona such as fruit crates, olive oil tins and pickle jars.

This skip chic collection for RoomService Gallery is a direct result from time spent in local recycling points around Barcelona.

Ryan Frank on TV

Yup… South African National TV channel SABC3 called up and said they would like to come and shoot some footage for their prime time magazine show Top Billing. [my mums favorite show]

Before long a crew of presenters and cameramen showed up at my London studio for a day of shooting.

The first half the day we filmed in the Geffrye Museum and the 2nd half took place in my studio and workshop.
