DIYable: cooking whisk lights


German-based design firm Findelkind repurposed cooking whisks into these awesome hanging lights.  they remind me of the edison light bulbs – my favorite kind of light bulb, but i like these more! titled ‘Chef de Cuisine,’ the lights were shown at the DMY Berlin art festival recently.

the best part about these is that whisks come in many sizes and styles, so you can mix and match if that’s your thing.  the reason i am drawn to the whisk lights is because they have an industrial feel to them.  they look like they could be antiques, which i love.

in order to make your own whisk light you will need:

  • a wire whisk – get the giant ones at restaurant supply stores or online
  • pre-wired pendant lamp with glass shade – Ikea has cheap ones or you could use a light cord kit.
  • crystal
  • light bulb
  • wire cutters
  • Needle nose pliers

for in-depth instructions on how to construct one of these yourself, head over to JUNKMARKET style.
