[...] lighting October 10th, 2007 chiquita chandelier ok, so this isn’t exactly the most functional piece of lighting, but how fun is this? designer anneke jacobs created this chandelier re-using chiquita banana boxes she found on the street. i love the thought-process behind this and the grand, over-the-top feeling she was able to create with some everyday cardboard boxes. fantastic. click here for more on anneke jacobs.

Must echo Carole, bloody corporation, decades and decades until the present.
Ironically, I am very often put off by how negative the comments are at this great website. But, I simply couldn't NOT agree with Carole. I am saddened by how many of we designers are disconnected from real world issues.
Wow... this is very cool! Great job, very proud!
Bet it would bring big bucks here in Cincinnati where the Chiquita hadquarters is located.
needs blood spatters for historical perspective
Chiquita was United Fruit- much killling done for UF via cia/us
A must have for Banana Lovers!....
indeed, this is a good contruction item. i wonder if it needs a mind that can do origami, i am totaly null at it. one other thing that strikes me is the setting. the dining table is huge and people could hardly get inside, the walls are of "beton" yet there is this immense natural light source from the window pane that makes you not so ill at ease in this room-box.
You can contact the designer directly via her website: http://www.annekejakobs.nl/
Her e-mail address is on the front page.
Thanks for reading!
