Upcycled Glass Bottle Chandeliers

Always on the search for great lighting, I can’t believe I didn’t discover this beautiful chandelier made from recycled bottles by Tord Boontje and Emma Woffenden sooner.

The lovely cascading shape was inspired by the simple scales of a pine cone. Beauty really is everywhere.

We collected pine cones from different trees and started looking at how the scales make beautiful shapes. We realized we could use the same technique, but with very long slices of the bottles.”

The couple began making vases and drinking vessels in their London studio in 1997 out of recycled wine and beer bottles. This venture grew into a full workshop in Guatemala City where dedicated artisans now produce pieces for Los Angeles based company Artecnica.
