This huge glassy chandelier, is made from Lego!

It was designed and, rather delicately, built, by Tobias Toestesen, for Milan Design Week. The idea, taking the same basic transparent shape to create a larger construct, is to manipulate the light, using the Lego pieces to create shifting patterns and distortions.

Some eight thousand of the large half-cyclinder pieces are used in it's construction. Here is Toestesen at work building it:
