Light the way

I could be biased here, but I think African's are incredibly creative when it comes to creating 'wow' lighting. Designers seem to have a knack for taking an everyday piece and turning it into an artistic lighting spectacular.

Village items such as fishing baskets and stompers (traditionally used for storing and grinding grain) are turned upside down and mounted in multiples; soft and delicate ostrich feathers are used to create feathery floating light balls whilst recycled plastic and glass is reborn as sparkling chandeliers.
