What do Specs, Trash and Tail Lights Have in Common? They Make Beautiful Chandeliers

Stuart Haygarth, a London designer, sees beauty in the discarded and unwanted. He combines quantities of similar items into beautiful lighting design. See what he does with 1,000 pairs of glasses, 4,500 lenses, 1,000 party poppers and more ↓

He explains his process as collecting large quantities of objects, categorizing and assembling them "in a way that transforms their meaning. [His] work is about giving banal and overlooked objects a new significance. The finished piece of work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects." Objective achieved.
