Look!: Water Bottle Chandelier

Look!: Water Bottle Chandelier

Jun 1, 2007

Yet another reason to drink your eight glasses of water a day: You can re-use the glass water bottles and make this fantastic light fixture. The recycled/DIY piece is part of the "Design Life Now: National Design Triennial 2006" exhibit at New York's Cooper-Hewitt Museum.

The VOS chandelier is on display along with ReadyMade: How to Make {Almost} Anything. The lamp is one of the projects included in Bay Area authors Shoshana Berger and Grace Hawthorne's book.

Unfortunately, no photos are allowed in the museum, so we don't have a shot of the actual exhibit. But here's a close-up of the bottles:

In case you haven't purchased the book yet, the Urbanite posted the instructions. But, in flipping through ReadyMade, we spotted so many other cool projects, we definitely think it's worth the purchase price.

(Psst: We also like the recycled Campari bottle chandelier that Mighty Girl blogged about yesterday.)
