What the do-it-yourself culture has shown the world is that anything is possible if people keep an open mind, simply take a look at the Cymbal Pendant Lamp. Although not necessarily a DIY project, it revolves around a repurposed percussion instrument.

Instead of discarding the instruments because of their damaged surfaces, Italy-based industrial designer Leonardo Criolani, who brought people the lightning-like Molocko Lamp, created the Cymbal Pendant Lamp. It is only appropriate that the light shining through the crack of the light fixture looks like a lightning strike as well.

Since the surface of such an object is pretty simple, the overall look of the Cymbal Pendant Lamp is one of minimalist industrialism. The weathered brass material really gives it a nice vintage finish.
