Earlier this week I asked about collections that creep you out. I still hold that dolls will forever give me the wiggins, but I have zero qualms with these beautiful lighting and furniture designs that are literally made from nature. As in insects and other creepy crawlies. Yup, they're totally the bee's knees (literally).

These limited pieces from designer Kobo Sin are simply breathtaking. It doesn't matter if you love or hate the idea, there's no denying that they're quite stunning. Here's what the artist has to say about the collection:

Exploring human's relationship with nature. We are losing touch with the natural world around us. The aim of this project is to confront and shock people by turning unwanted and unused parts of nature into provocative products and pulling nature back into people's minds.

There are bones, intestines and whole insects used in these creations. There are more stunning photos over at the artist's website. So stop by and take a closer look at what really went into the pieces shown above and the rest of the collection.
