Bags cleaning up the bottles!

House parties are definitely the ultimate... cases upon cases of good times to be had, but then, when all of the karaoke, hook ups and rack ups are over, someone has to clean up.
We're putting our hands up, if it means that we can do something awesome with the bottles like these clever cats.

Mad Mex (Shop 2 / 241 - 247 Crown St, Darlinghurst 02 9331 7788) has a stellar Corona Chandelier that is made up of cascading bottles, and lacquered hard wood. Check it out on Glass Central Canberra, this beautiful piece could light up a dinner party over a dark wood kitchen table, or would work perfectly in a lounge room.... all soft lighting, polished concrete and the like!

Something altogether different is the use of bottles by Alex Beim - a multi talented GD / installation artist, who develops experimental and sensory installation pieces for clients and for fun through his company Tangible Interaction Design, that are stunning. Some of you may have even seen his balloons at work at recent Coldplay gigs. Check out his bottle wall which has an LED controllable light behind each bottle which is controlled by an on board computer.
