Ever since I spotted the Maria SC Lamp on Design Milk , I've been dreaming about the many different ways I could create my own art with this simple test tube chandelier from Polish designer (and Etsy seller) Pani Jurek . Jurek graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 2007 and has a particular interest in lighting; for this project, she used two circular bands of plywood, 96 test tubes, and a ceramic socket. "The double glass cylinder recalls Art Deco forms in a contemporary way," Jurek says. "And the use of ready-made objects references the work of Duchamp.The tubes are detachable and the lamp provides the opportunity for visual experiment by creating a variety of configurations and arrangements." Jurek sells the lamps on Etsy (she is currently sold out, but promises that new stock is coming soon). Above: I could create my own meadow of wild flowers. Above: Another view of my imaginary meadow. Above: I could create an aerial herb garden using parsley from the green grocers. Above: I could pay tribute to Polish chemist and Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie by highlighting the test tubes in all their simplicity.
