When you first feast your eyes on one of Stuart Haygarth’s quirky designs, the first thing that becomes immediately ingrained in your memory is his apparent talent for juxtaposing color with form. His recent design, the Disposable Chandelier, is no exception to the rule. Humorously crafted out of 416 disposable plastic wine glasses, the chandelier is lit with a pink fluorescent light source. Incidentally, a smaller version made with 280 glasses is also available. While the atmosphere created by this piece is elegant enough for any posh dinner party, its unusual construction also provides ample material for after-dinner conversation!

Based in both London and Berlin, Haygarth has been concocting interior designs out of banal, everyday objects since 2004. Specializing in photographic illustration and sculptural works, he has customized pieces for a number of big-name clients such as Porsche and MAC cosmetics.
