Tide Chandelier

 This pretty light fixture is a creation by Stuart Haygarth called the Tide Chandelier.  Need a close up?

Now let me explain… this piece is made out of a collection of man-made debris that Stuart found over the past several years washed up on the Kent coastline.  He chose the sphere shape “as an analogy for the moon which effects the tides which in turn wash up the debris.”

Although it is sad that all this “junk” was at one time floating in our oceans, it is always interesting to get a new perspective and see how people are incorporating the “green movement” into their product offerings.  For more cool sustainable design that doesn’t suck, check out the Good Magazine’s article titled, Looking at Sustainable Design that Doesn’t Suck.

Unfortunately, now I want to dump loads of random stuff right off the Kent coastline in hopes that Stuart will make more of his sold out beauties

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
