Spoon Chandelier

This Spoon Chandelier would make a nice statement in a cafe or restaurant and may even be cool hanging in the right kitchen. Japanese designer, Daisuke Hiraiwa was inspired by shoals of fish to meticulously craft a chandelier of recycled plastic spoons. The punctured plastic spoons are adhered together to create a queue of lights. Tiny holes disperse the light while it passes through them and create a charming effect. I always enjoy seeing found objects used to create something distinct, unique and unexpected.
