Chiquita Chandelier

The biggest name in bananas can also mean the biggest contribution to cardboard waste—if thrown away. Dutch Designer Anneke Jakobs collected discarded cartons in the street during her days as a student at the Utrecht School of Product Design. Ten cartons make up the luxe chandelier. Desktop paper fasteners hold it all together. The look is unexpected, chic, and surprisingly upscale. Chiquita Chandelier.
