Bottles of Hope Chandelier

Peter Sid wrote in to tell us about his “Bottles of Hope” chandelier that he has entered into a design contest at Apartment Therapy.

Evocative of the famous Droog Milk Bottle Lamp, Peter’s design features an array of 108 chemotherapy bottles, individually lit by LEDs. (Chemo bottles have been decorated and repurposed since 1999 by the Bottles of Hope project, hence the name.)

We’ve embedded Peter’s slideshow video above. If you can’t see it here, you can click here to view it at Vimeo.
And, if you look closely, you might spot the Peggy 2LE that he used to drive his LEDs.

Voting for the contest is this week, and I’m sure that Peter would appreciate your vote.

  2. Love it!

    Not only that it has a very inspired meaning behind it (never heard of bottles of hope before) but it’s also extremely cool looking.

    Would definitely use this in my apartment.
