Designed by Daisuke Hiraiwa, these elegant echidna-esque Stamen chandeliers elevate an everyday material into brilliant expressions of found design. Each one is created by gluing hundreds of toothpicks together to form a flexible disc that gives their bristling points a fluid form. The pointillist pendant lamps recently debuted at ICFF 2009, where they wowed onlookers with their complex folding curves and innovative use of materials.
To create his stunning toothpick pendant lamps, Daisuke uses a process that is strikingly simple. First he arranges hundreds of toothpicks so that they are standing on end in a recessed circular container. Next he paints over the ends with a flexible Japanese glue. The result is a flexible disc that folds in upon itself in beautiful ways when hung from above.
