Sweet Carolina! Bike part chandeliers

Our own Process 376 rock star Oliver makes liberal use of salvaged bike parts in his modern lighting, but designer Carolina Fortouna takes the idea in a different direction, using the forms of Victorian crystal chandeliers as her inspiration. You can say it's a commentary on class and power, or you can just think it looks cool.

If you're lucky enough to be in Mexico City before August 1, you can see them in person at Upper Playground's Fifty24MX. If you're not going south of the border anytime soon, modart*NEWS has a very nice write-up and lots more photos, including this exploded view from the flyer.
