Zip Tie Lights

Zip tie lightsWe both of us know how useful zip ties are — but have you ever considered how attractive they are? Well, perhaps not straight out of the package, but awesome artist Steven Haulenbeek has put together these stunning light fixtures using plain old every day zip ties.

I love the way that he’s using normal white zip ties and letting the light illuminate them so ti’s bright in the center and pales down as it moves out farther — and the fact that you really can’t tell that these are zip ties making this awesome looking light fixture. You almost certainly are only able to do this with florescent lights, however, since incandescent bulbs would have the potential to melt the nylon of the zip ties.
