paper chandeliers


Via Dezeen:

An undulating canopy of cardboard tubes by American studio Cristina Parreño Architecture and students from MIT hovered over visitors at the ARCOMadrid art fair in Spain last month.

Overall, it is a bit much for me, particularly at that ceiling height, but in smaller doses this is a lovely design.  It would particularly striking if upgraded to an LED solution, with one pixel per tube (but still monochromatic white).  The ceiling would generate some very graceful, flowing patterns of motions.
