Bubble Chandelier by Souda

November 14th, 2012 by retail design blog

Constructed from post-consumer soda bottles, the Bubble Chandelier was originally inspired by the cell-like shape of soap bubbles. Elle Decor India calls the Bubble Chandelier “…an upcycled wonder, transforming the used, old and ordinary into new and highly covetable.” The Bubble Chandelier is made from 60 two-liter soda bottles, with each piece cut and connected with aluminum rivets.

The Bubble Chandelier is being made through a partnership with Sure We Can, a Brooklyn based non-profit organization that runs the only homeless-friendly can redemption center in New York City. The entirety of the plastic bottles used to create the Bubble Chandelier are post-consumer bottles, collected on New York City streets by homeless individuals and people who collect cans. A portion of the proceeds from each light sold will be donated directly to Sure We Can to help improve the conditions of their facility.
