Designer Stuart Haygarth makes chandeliers out of discarded materials, including eyeglasses. Pictured above is one of his works, made from 1020 pairs. In an interview about this ongoing project, Haygarth wrote:
For years I have always wanted to do a piece of work with spectacles or sunglasses. This started because I was always finding strange spectacles at flea markets and the fact that each pair once had an owner who relied on them as a tool to see. This narrative and the idea of making a light from an object that helps people to see (in the same way a light does) I find interesting. I have specifically chosen to use spectacles with transparent plastic frames so that the frame becomes illuminated.
