We just got back from setting up our morning pot of Intelligentsia good morning when we happened upon this seriously stunning chandelier made out of hundreds of plastic coffee stirrers (appropriately named "Spoon"). Normally reused/recycled items have a visibly DIY sheen to it, but we'd suspect this chandelier could easily be mistaken for crystal or glass on first glance. More details below...
The high-end, low-source lighting was created by Portuguese design company Studio Veríssimo:
This is a lamp made from plastic spoons used in the coffee which are going to the garbage daily by the thousands because they are only used once.The objective was with this waste to create a luxurious lamp.
Our local coffee spot doesn't use plastic stirrers (which is good). But our local gelato shop down the street uses little plastic spoons that could be used in a similar DIY project. Anything for an excuse for (lots of) gelato, right?
