Fire + Water: An Upcycled Robot

kvart robot-3

One year ago, I sent you some pictures of robots that I created from IKEA among other items . Here the youngest: “Fire and water”
Summer is great for outdoor seconds hands markets. Often I find IKEA items. This time, I got 2 feet from a Sultan bed and a pair of Kvart lamps.

I had this small fire extinguisher for a long time, which I don’t know what to do with.

The opportunity was good. I simply used the feet as it is and attached them to the fire extinguisher.

For the lamps, I stripped them for having a metal unity. Then I also screwed to the red body.

To complete the set, as a head I used an old brass sink drain.

Finally, here is a single lamp, resulting from recycled materials and diverted from its original purpose.
