1. The Chandelier Made from Pens:

At first glance, this may look like a standard chandelier.  Look closer.  It’s actually constructed from 347 recycled Bic Cristal pens and 347 paper clips.  Talk about what you wouldn’t expect a light to be made of!  This one has got to be in the same category as the chandelier made from 3000 ping pong balls.

2. Better Defined as “Sculpture”:

This piece of light art was designed by Marcus Tremonto.  Its super-thin structure cascades from the ceiling to create a truly stunning effect.  Check out more of Tremonto’s work, you won’t be disappointed.  He blends style and function in a captivating way that makes you think twice about convention.

3. The Solar Floor Lamp:

By day, the lamp can be tilted toward the window to absorb the sun’s rays (and blend in seamlessly to any room). By night, you reposition it to light up your home, no power plug required. Photovoltaic cells capture energy and a battery stores it for the evening. The lamp also uses LED light bulbs. Going green has never looked so good!

4. They’re Called Wall Piercings:

Each of those rings you see are LED light fixtures, and these are certainly not ordinary wall-mounted lights. Casting a round ring of light on the wall, they can be linked and intertwined to create some spectacular effects with shadows and patterns. It’s a whole new way to think about “lighting design.”

5. The Bendable Lamp

Mold and fold this lamp into any shape you want. Wrap it around a table leg. Stand it up on your desk. Twist it for the optimal reading light. This lamp is the ultimate as far as customization! It’s a perfect seamless solution for cluttered interiors.
