New Icon: Stuart Haygarth

Taken from Stuart Haygarth's profile

"Starting in 2004 I have been working on design projects which revolve around the collections of objects. The objects are normally collected in large quantities categorized and assembled in a way that transforms their meaning. My work is about giving banal and overlooked objects a new significance. The finished piece of work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects."

Can we say HUGE ARTIST CRUSH???

Here is just a smattering of his amazing work:

"Aladdin" - Collected glass pieces from flea markets all in the same colour, then illuminated from the bottom to provide a beautiful glow and preserved case of "jewels". Wouldn't this be INCREDIBLE as a coffee table?
"Aladdin" in violet

"Urchin" - Believe it or not, this "shaggy" appearance comes from spectacle arms!

"Urchin"

"Disposable" - This is kinda incredible. Stuart took plastic embossed wine glasses and made this stunning light fixture. He has a pink florescent light inside.

"Disposable"

"Disposable" raw material!

"Tide" - Uh, this is insanity. This is a chandelier created from plastic pieces found washed up on the Kent shoreline.  This particular piece was made with clear pieces. You can barely see the clear strings holding up the pieces. There is one for each piece and they are attached to a MDF platform above.

"Spectacle" - Chandelier made of spectacles!

"Wing Mirror Table" - Inspired by smashed wing mirrors of cars… amazing coffee table. The shattered glass is laminated with toughened glass to create a smooth surface.
