The Bird Poop Chandelier may not sound like the most appetizing light to have over one's dining table, but while its name prepares people for the overall design concept, it does not prepare people for how classy it manages to look. Industrial designer Wyatt Little has miraculously turned what could have been disastrous idea into a quirkily sophisticated and even luxurious creation.

The Bird Poop Chandelier pays homage to a long-past event in Little's childhood. While standing below an oak tree, he became the target of one very rude bird. Instead of creating a dark and sad tribute to this obviously traumatic occurrence, the Bird Poop Chandelier beautifully reclaims his power while showing how he is a bigger man than the bird.
