Cape Town designer Heath Nash has given us images from his presentation at last week's Design Indaba conference, showing a range of lights and other products made from salvaged plastic.

Nash, who was named South African designer of the year last year, was also one of the highlights of the Design Indaba Expo show held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre over the weekend.

His work draws on the local craft tradition of using recycled plastic bottles and other objects to make new objects.

Our new friend Uleshka from PingMag in Japan did a good interview with Nash last year, which you can read here.

We're back from Cape Town now but will continue to upload material from Design Indaba over the coming days.

    Love his designs and am desperate to find a shop where his work can be purchased from. He has got no direct website. Please help.

    Please email me more info on your works, I own a chain of coffee shops and `i’m interested in your lighting, regards Kim Shafto

    I hate to say this, but gorgeous products made from recycled material beg to be mass produced and sold in places like (gulp!) Target. Or at least Pier One. A central goal of recycling is to use up used stuff.
