Bicycle riding is a healthy and clean mode of transportation, however due to traffic and poor roads bicycling around many urban centers of the world is unsafe at best.  This desk lamp, made from old bicycle tire from my local bike shop, came out of a frustration at the lack of re-use around me paired with the desire to recycle something old into something functional and beautiful.
