Find Upswitch on Instagram, or meet the maker at the Makers & Shakers on Sunday 12 November at the Coburg Town Hall.
Brunswick-based maker Michael Hanley (aka Mister Upswitch) creates one-of-a-kind lamps by reinventing and reimagining old treasures and turning them into beautiful pieces that inspire and illuminate. Using science and laboratory instruments, photographic equipment, kitchenalia, salvaged timbers, and so on, Upswitch brings neglected objects back to life with an elegant and whimsical twist. Each piece is hand-made and is a one-off, its design informed by its original use and its own distinct character. The result is a unique feature piece for the home that will illuminate and inspire.
