Walking Things (Vienna, Austria) has come out with a great recycling solution for some of the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic beverage bottles you might have lying around. They make the lighting frame for you to design your own hanging lamp or eco-chandelier. The kit consists of laser cut transparent acrylic holder for nine bottles, a lamp-holder with bulb fitting, cable and canopy.

The PET light was designed by Karl Pircher, Fidel Peugeot and Sylvia Sauermann. Some of their suggestions to personalize your eco chandelier is to use similar coloured bottle caps and to add colour-coordinated material like plastic mesh and other plastic material.
