Behold! The glowing gherkin chandelier has arrived

You can have a swarovski crystal chandelier, or you can have a gherkin chandelier. So, which will it be? I thought so. 

This monstros… err, monumental chandelier was created by Sam Bompas and Harry Parr who call themselves ‘specialists in flavor-based experience design, culinary research, architectural installations and contemporary food design’.

Their latest design is made from 50 gherkins and because of the gherkin’s vinegar content, it produces a sublime green glow when it’s powered up. In fact, while working with an electrical engineer, these guys realised that a small gherkin draws 300w while a large gherkin draws up to 500w – wow!

Take a look at this video to see the gherkin chandelier in action, then head on over the their website to read all about why they actually made it.
