Dezeen Showroom: Australian studio Heliograf has released an updated version of its Light Soy lamp, this time made from recycled plastic bound for the oceans.

Heliograf's Light Soy lamp is shaped like the iconic fish-shaped soy sauce packet and intends to celebrate a fun design while also raising awareness of the problem that single-use plastics present to marine life.

"When we first designed Light Soy we experimented with recycled plastic and it was of low quality and questionable origin," said designer and Heliograf co-founder Angus Ware.

"Now, in just a few years small studios like ours have access to certified recycled ocean-bound plastics. It's exciting that so much progress has been made already."

The updated Light Soy lamp is made from 75 per cent recycled polypropylene, and Heliograf plans to raise that to 100 per cent across all components and products as it gets more familiar with the material.

Light Soy is available in table lamp or pendant versions and is designed for repair and eventual recycling. It comes in plastic-free packaging.

Product: Light Soy
Brand: Heliograf
