Cool Idea: Recycled Chiquita Banana Box Chandelier

During her time at the Utrecht School of the Arts in the Netherlands, artist Anneke Jakobs salvaged Chiquita Banana boxes and cut out their cheerful banana shapes and iconic logos. She then cleverly arranged them into chandelier form, fastening the cardboard together with cotter pins. Motivated makers can email her for PDF directions to make their own (and interested buyers can also email for pricing). "At the end," she says, "it's everyone's choice to spend their time or their money on something."

So Warhol, and interesting! More like a sculpture than a chandelier though -- don't notice any lights.
