Bubble Chandelier Made from Post-Consumer PET Bottles
View Slideshow

Souda, a new NYC-based product design company, created a stunning chandelier from post-consumer PET bottles. The bottles were collected by homeless individuals in an effort to raise money for the non-profit SURE WE CAN, which runs the only homeless-friendly can redemption center in the NYC area.

After collection, the bottles were brought to Souda’s studio to be cleaned, cut and riveted together to create a dome-like lighting fixture using upwards of 60 upcycled bottles.
