Designer Ed Chew managed to create a modern pendant light out of drink cartons that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. We found this fun DIY project on Yanko Design , where Chew documents the different stages of how he took it from discarded drink packet to modern light fixture. Since modern pendant lights are one of my favorite accessories, I just had to share this awesome idea. Chew achieved this Epcot-like ball by unfolding the packets and then refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere. This makes you wonder what other modern home decor accessories or light fixtures can we make out of something that we might otherwise just throw away.... Since we love everything related to modern design, it's no doubt this Eco-friendly DIY pendant made us take a double look!  MC49VRXP6HEC Images: Yanko Design
