Fabulous Flatware

Plastic flatware???You've got to be kidding me! Designer Daisuke Hiraiwa painstakingly uses a soldering iron to poke holes into plastic spoons and knifes to create beautiful chandeliers full of movement and reflections of light.

The picture above is a close up of the flatware after Hiraiwa has carefully punched each hole, and the chandeliers below are the end result to his vision. His work was featured at this years ICFF and if you'd like to read more about Daisuka Hiraiwa you can go to his website.

Considering the nature of this post I thought it was only fitting that I also feature a design by Ali Siahvoshi which reuses flatware in a most attractive manner. Check out samples of his overhead dining light as well as a wall sconce created by Siahovoshi and manufactured through Fabbian.
