I recently stopped by my friend's drawing exhibit at the California College of the Arts, and of course I couldn't help but check out the digs. Aside from the fancy schmancy Le Corbusier chairs in the lounge (seriously, I went to the wrong college), my eyes were drawn to this chandelier, made from upcycled plastic bottles, hanging from the ceiling. Obviously, it's not for all, but I loved the way it looked in this industrial space. At first glance, I didn't realize it was made from plastic bottles; it almost looks like some sort of jellyfish/sea-life creature. It also reminded me a lot of the pendant light in the West Coast Green Harbinger House. As we saw with Michelle Brand's eco designs, there's a lot one can do with a plastic bottle after the cola's gone flat. I'm glad that students are getting that message as well.
