Volivik Lamp by En Pieza, Ballpoint Pen Chandelier, Recycled pen lamp, recycled pen chandelier [1]

It seems like you can make a beautiful chandelier out of just about anything these days – and it makes us wonder why society stood by the monotony of hanging crystal pendants for so long. These recycled bic pen chandeliers [2] by En Pieza [2] look just as classy (if not classier), refract light in the most gorgeous way, AND are far more creative and eco-friendly than their staid crystal counterparts. What more could you ask for in a chandelier?

The Volivik Lamp [3], by En Pieza [2], is painstakingly hand-made using primarily the little plastic icon of 20th Century design. The chandelier comes in both orange and clear, but we much prefer the clear, as the orange doesn’t have the same reflective/refractive qualities. Whatever your preference, the Volivik comes in a limited edition of just 30 pieces, so if you want one, you better act fast.

$1000 from En Pieza
