Design Milk's Meg Kemner is back at it again with a fun and stylish do-it-yourself home decor project: the Copper Geometric Pendant Lamp. As though inspired by industrial cage lighting, this fixture incorporates soft cut copper pipes to create a look that is at once vintage and new.
Using a small arsenal including a rule, C-clamp, needlenose pliers and a cord set, the Copper Geometric Pendant Lamp essentially involves a lot of bending. Once the copper pipes take on the shape the craftsperson wants, they are fitted with metal rings and cotton pins that allow them to attache together.
The number of pipes used for the Copper Geometric Pendant Lamp is up to each individual. Kemner suggests, "For a real statement, adding more copper pipes would throw bold, dramatic shadows through the room."
