“The chandeliers were created after I noticed the vast amounts of corks being thrown away daily from Champagne bars.”
‘Celebration chandelier‘ by London based British designer/artist Alkesh Parmar. Creating sculpture like lightings by utilising banal everyday objects, most of the time these materials are discarded after use. “The notion of recycling is an important part to my practice, however this is not my prime objective.” The central point of his study is light and the relationship it shares with the objects.
The corks are hollowed out and outfitted with LED bulbs, programmed with circuitry which then customized to various interiors including restaurants, bars and homes. Each cork is hand crafted into individual lamps and grouped together to form a neutral, warm and beautiful chandelier.
