This lamp sheds light on the romance within the art of recycling auto parts. Armando Ramírez sculpts lovers on a park bench under a street lamp sitting arm in arm, and a rose between them. Bearings are transformed into the lovers’ heads and bendix starters are used for their bodies along with wires and metal sheets. Cast-offs from die machines, sheets of metal, wires and tubes are used to craft the bench and street lamp under the jute lampshade.
