Every year, Crookedworks donates a piece of salvaged furniture to the Green Project’s Salvations furniture competition and auction. The event is a fundraiser for the New Orleans non-profit and an opportunity to highlight waste and upcycling. This luminaire took home the award for best lighting design, creating a pattern of dappled light with a nod to the food culture of New Orleans.
