I just saw this light created by designer Stuart Haygarth at MAD last week...
and let me tell you it was so beautiful it was shocking.
Such ordinary, banal, dated objects collected to make a prism of colors, lights, and playful shadows...If I ever get rich and have a house big enough for a giant chandelier I will commission one of these and it will make me smile everyday.
Some other work by Stuart:
You really must go over to his website and see his genius and gorgeous lamps out of the most ordinary of materials
