Tide Chandelier Stuart Haygarth 2 [1]

London-based designer Stuart Haygarth [2] knows now to turn mass amounts of trash into awe-inspiring treasure. With training in design and photography, Haygarth [2] conceived of the Tide Chandelier [3] while collecting debris that had washed up on the shores of the Kent coastline. The enormous light fixture, measuring nearly five feet in diameter, is composed of a cornucopia of clear plastic refuse, from water bottles to sunglasses.


The Tide Chandelier [3] gets is name from its spherical shape, a reference to the moon, whose tidal pull creates the waves that wash up the debris. The mass of plastic objects hangs delicately from monofilament lines suspended from above by a wooden “platform.” Haygarth’s [2] lighting designs are inspired by collections of “banal and overlooked” objects, which, when amassed in large quantities in clever arrangements, take on a new beauty and stunning visual impact.

Tide Chandelier [3] in an edition of ten, price upon request [4].
