We’ve seen a lot of cool applications for Tyvek, but never one that drew its inspiration from the Rococo period – until now! Named after the palace of King Louis XIV, the Grand Trianon is a chandelier made from the lightweight, recycled material. Not only is the green light fixture super easy to transport (think about this in comparison to an actual full size crystal chandelier), but when it’s lit, it emits a soft twinkling glow.
