The Bubble Chandelier by Souda, a product design company based in New York City, is made out of post-consumer soda bottles. A stunning upcycled creation, it does not look at all like it is an eco-friendly endeavor. That is, until one looks closely enough. Once that happens, he or she will be able to see the intact details of the bottles used, from their ridged bottoms to the rim of their lips.

Shaped into ethereal orbs, the light source in the center of the Bubble Chandelier by Souda, creating the illusion that it is made out of several small light bulbs. The bottles used for the light fixture were collection by homeless individuals to raise money for the non-profit SURE WE CAN. Stats for PET Bottle Lighting Trending: Older & Buzzing
