ZIP-TIE LIGHTS by Steven Haulenbeek

Who knew such mundane little plastic devices could be so beautiful? Steven Haulenbeek , for one, as his Zip-Tie lights turn piles of these oft-overlooked plastic gizmos into stunning, anemone-like light fixtures. We’ve seen zip-ties used before, like in Carlos Alberto Montona Hoyos’ A La Lata chair , but even then, they were hardly the main event. Haulenbeek , an alumnus of the School of the Art Institute’s graduate design program, conceptualized the lights began as a critique of the luxury home accessory market. The project, while still under development, is evolving into a successful (and gorgeously simple) product. For more information, please refer to the designer’s website .
