Shardlery & Shardalier by Daniel Harper: Break Glass Bottles to Make Your Own Lamp

Now this is a crazy object. But a lot of fun! This object was created especially for me – for my deviant behavior. In order for this object to work someone needs to throw empty bottles against a cement backing. Breaking bottles can release a lot tension.

There are really two parts to this object: the Sharldery and the Shardalier. The Shardlery is like a factory. You throw in a bottle and glass shards are produced. The Shardalier catches the broken glass becoming a lamp the light of which shines through the glass shards. I’ve actually witnessed people hugging this product at parties. It’s a big “hit”.


Definitely a refreshing take on interactive furniture, and very very creative. I want one.
