London designer Tim Fishlock has created a chandelier made of 1243 spent incandescent light bulbs.
Called What Watt?, the piece marks the phasing-out of incandescent bulbs in favour of low-energy alternatives.
The bulbs are suspended in a spherical formation with a 1.1 metre diametre, surrounding a single compact fluorescent bulb.
Watch a time-lapse video of the chandelier's construction here.

Here's some more information from Tim Fishlock:
What Watt? is a memorial to and a celebration of the humble incandescent lightbulb. It’s a spherical chandelier, 1010mm in diameter made up of 1243 suspended bulbs of various shape and size, illuminated by a single low-energy light source. By 2011, all forms of incandescent light bulb will have been phased out in favour of greener alternatives. What Watt? marks the passing of a beautiful design that has remained relatively unchanged since its invention 130 years ago.
Designed and fabricated for a private commission. I will be producing an edition of ten.
