Unibro Design is a boutique company based in Austria that specialises in upcycling vintage car parts into designer furniture. This unique twin-lamp uses the polished aluminium rocker covers from a V8, with a body made from an injection pump, a part of an alternator, and a bespoke wooden base.
Daniyel Ferahyan, the founder of Unibro Design, has installed twin Edison bulbs and traditional twisted cloth-covered electrical cords.
