This rather odd looking light fixture created by English designer Tim Fishlok is a memorial to incandescent light bulbs. The chandelier entitled What Watt? is made up of a whopping 1,243 old and inefficient incandescent bulbs.

Tim Fishlock created the bulbous chandelier to portray a message of green sustainable energy use verses old school energy consumption. The entire chandelier is powered with only one centralized, energy-efficient bulb.

Implications - The chandelier looks stunning and from far away you would have no idea that it is made up out of over a thousand light bulbs. Tim Fishlok just goes to show that going green and recycling can look amazing. His art can also be used as a learning tool to teach people about sustainable alternatives.
