LIGHTING DESIGN: Stunning Recycled Bicycle Chandelier

Recycled Bicycle Chandeliers by artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga.
CONNECT is a series of chandeliers inspired by DIY and Bike punk culture combined with aesthetics rooted in the Victorian era created by LA based artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga. Her handmade bespoke pieces evoke a strong industrial look and invite the viewer to examine them up-close in order to come to grips with their fine details and the technical precision needed to put them together.
Carolina managed to master the challenges faced by resilient materials such as bicycle chains and cassettes and created a stunning collection which also addresses universal themes around sustainability and the environment. She admits to having a strong connection with urban bicycle culture and hopes to inspire audiences to question their ideas on what is beautiful and functional.
