Michelle Brand's ingenious creations are the very definition of "trash to treasure": The Manchester, England eco-designer repurposes the bottoms of discarded plastic soda bottles to create breathtakingly beautiful and ethereal light fixtures, ambient lighting, window screens, and room dividers.

Blossom LED ambient lighting
Flowerfall window screen or room dividers, $350 per square foot
