Flashmob Pendant by Henny van Nistelrooy

As someone who has occasionally assisted with professional photo shoots and art-directed some photography, I found this pendant lamp by Henny van Nistelrooy both inventive and smart — the pendant chandelier is made from collapsible light-reflecting disks...

A common tool in any professional photographer's arsenal of transportable equipment, the discs are made from a reflective metallic fabric stretched over a wire frame. The round wire (or plastic) frame can be folded upon itself (much like a collapsible tent) to make the large disc smaller for transport.

The Flashmob pendant looks to use about 8 of the reflecting discs in it's construction. This is a great idea and could be a fun DIY project — a single 32" disc can be purchased for less than $12 from MaxSaver. And if you wanted to create a HUGE light fixture, 43" discs are about $30 from Amazon.
