This porcelain and borosilicate glass 21-pendant chandelier by Bocci is inspired by mother nature. It resembles barnacles on a substrate only this creation employs borosilicate glass perched on a metal wire fastened to a brushed nickel awning. The canopy masterpiece is available at $11,460.

Implications - The idea of designers taking inspiration from the sea isn't new, but most designers choose elements such as fish, coral reefs or waves for their artistic interpretations. Selecting barnacles -- often-overlooked crustaceans that attach to any surface they can and feed by filtering particles -- is an unexpected twist on a marine theme that is sure to attract attention.
