Organelle Design

Alex and Courtney (Organelle Design) are passionate about creatively repurposing off-the-shelf products and found objects. They presented their work at Pecha Kucha a few days ago and it was the highlight of the evening. The entire place erupted with cheers when images of their chandeliers made out of clothes hangers appeared on screen.

    I saw this idea in RadyMade magazine nearly a year ago. I wonder who did it first. http://www.re-nest.com/re-nest/look/look-readymades-hanger-chandelier-069952

    • wow good find – its totally one of those things when you see it you think, why didn’t i think of it

  • SpaceAce

    I’m all for re purposing cast-off objects. There is a ice cream shop in Columbus Ohio that uses old mason jars for lamps.

    • bob

  • Adam NYC
