the folks at portland, oregon’s eleek have brought us this innovative calliope chandelier made from recycled aluminum. the exterior shell is made of art glass rectangles that are “clipped” onto the frame. it comes in an incandescent or fluorescent version, and buyers can customize the color of the art glass as well as the powdercoat on the frame if they wish.
i want very badly to say this is rustic/vintage looking even though it feels ultra contemporary. there’s something about those layers of glass that remind me of the old clay tile roofs on historic arts and crafts buildings here in chicago.
very unique indeed.
see their website for the complete home collection (the page about the company’s approach to sustainability is inspiring!) and for purchasing info.
