Recycled Bicycle Chain Chandelier

How many recycled bicycle chains does it take to make a chandelier like this? - 600 should do it.

Made in Holland by artist Laurence van Seventer using a plentiful natural resource that would otherwise be scrapped this imposing recycled bicycle chain chandelier is a one-off creation that is nearly a metre in diameter and over 3.5m in height.

Despite its humble origin it is elegant, refined, and diffuses a warm atmospheric light projecting unexpected shadows and patterns onto the surrounding walls and ceilings of the space. 

It is very interesting also to see the chains close-up where their differing levels of wear, colouration and slight variations in shape give the chandelier a surprisingly natural and unforced ambience.
