Originally I wanted this to be a whole post about vintage hairdryers repurposed into lamps (it's not always wise to share favourite coffee shop secrets - I need to get a seat) but I couldn't find many images. Does anyone know what the technical term is for one of these hairdryers-on-a-stand, because I'm sure that's what was holding me back from any great image success. Still, I was pleased to at least find this one. I think it is one seriously stylish lamp.
If you are interested in other lamps which are made from non-standard shades, check out these brilliant birdcage chandeliers and 'typelighters' (ie typewriter + light, but I suppose you all knew that). There are lots more ideas for repurposed lamps here, where I found the above lamp, which include using old Hoovers, cake stands and galvinised steel buckets.
Scooterworks is at 132 Lower Marsh, London, SE1 7AE. It is actually a great little street, with a fantastic Cuban restaurant called Cubana, and lots of vintage shops.
