Cassette Tape Lamp: Love It or Leave It?

Whether it coordinates with your decor or not, some things get free passes for being eco-friendly examples of recycled objects that would have been wasted otherwise. Such is the case with this Cassette Tape Lamp by Transparent House.

Indeed, while this lamp, made up of used, superfluous cassette tapes possesses a certain '80s aesthetic, it's also disarmingly ethereal — and it hits me right in my green spot. I've got to say, for this: love it!

What about you? Does it hit you in your green spot, too, or your just-plain-ugly spot?

I think its kitsch and sort of cute in a retro style. If the lamps are manufactured from recycled tapes, are they making sure the information on the tape spools are actually erased prior to assembly? Could you imagine a lamp filled with psychiatry patient recording, top secret corportate info, or university lecture notes? Could prove for an interesting and disturbing conversation piece in the household. ;) Just image all the secrets that could be locked away in your new household accent. Just something to think about before you either buy the lamp or try recycling your evidence.

It's clever, and maybe in an office it would be okay - I'd hate it in my house.
