I found this innovative and gorgeous Pendant Lighting in the gallery / event space of Repoproom in the Chelsea Gallery District. It was my friend Anne who realized the globes are constructed from clusters from upcycled 2 Liter plastic Soda Bottles! What a great recycling idea!
I’m not sure how these lamps were made but I’d bet you could do a little Googling and find step-by-step DIY instructions for a similar project. Because, the Internets.
Ah, I get a little nostalgic for my long dead first iMac when I see how these (now ancient) iMac G3 carcasses have been gutted and re-purposed as pendant lighting for a travel agency called G Adventures. Clever!
These Garlic Bulb pendant lamps designed by Anton Naselevets would be an amazing ambient and thematically appropriate addition to the decor of an Italian restaurant, particularly a restaurant like The Stinking Rose– which specializes garlic-based cuisine! See in the photo below how directional light comes from the underside of the shade – so cool!
