Swarovski Light Sock: The Chandelier Re-Imagined?

Swarovski Light Sock: The Chandelier Re-Imagined?

We somehow missed these fabulous Swarovski light socks when they premiered at Design Miami 07, but just had to share now that they are available for purchase. Essentially a mesh bag filled with crystals and a single light source, this light sock is being marketed as "the people's chandelier"...

Designed by the architecture and design firm of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the Light Sock contains 46 lbs of crystal and a 75W halogen bulb, and is available from Unica Home for $4,400.

Given the price, we're not really sure we agree that this is a chandelier aimed at the masses, but do wonder about the DIY possibilities for a talented amateur.
