Jurgen Lehl established his fashion textiles company in Japan in 1972, and in 2006 he began to design ecologically responsible, hand-made products for Babaghuri. In recent years, while staying at his house on Ishigaki Island in Okinawa Prefecture, he was struck by the increasing amount of waste washing up on the beaches. Some of the trash is Japanese, and some has drifted ashore from other Asian countries. To attract attention to this serious epidemic of ugly debris, he began collecting plastic garbage to create colourful and surprising lamps. Filled with numerous images of these objects, this first volume also includes photos of the collecting and creative process.
