Henny Van Nistelrooy created the 'Flashmob' using old light reflecting discs, usually used for photography.

The 'Flashmob' was made by twisting and manipulating old light discs into new shapes, and then assembling them into an oversized and dramatic light fixture. The design by Henny Van Nistelrooy is a great re-imagining of photography equipment.

Implications - Even old and discarded equipment can be turned into dramatically new products, and this light fixture is a great example of how upcycling is a legitimate means to create truly inventive creations. Products of this nature have an appeal to consumers that is two fold: on one hand they are functional and aesthetically brilliant, but on the other hand they also are ingenious and fascinating which means that they serve as conversation pieces to be shown off and admired.
