Dear Ingo-inspired chandelier hacked from 8 Tertial Worklamps

Materials: 8 X Tertial Work Lamps, 20mm thick board cut into a disc, threaded rods X 3

Always loved the look of Dear Ingo chandelier but could never bear to spend that kind of money so I got creative and voila!

1) Get a piece of 20mm thick timber board cut into a disc and have it stained dark

2) Clamp on 8 numbers of Tertial Work Lamps in equal distance around the disc and have all the wires connected so that it they turn on together (I had a handy electrician friend to help with this part of the work)

3) Drill 3 holes around the centre of the disc and secure the 3 threaded rods

4) Have the whole chandelier secured to the ceiling with the 3 threaded rods

5) Connect the wires and throw the switch

6) Position all the work lamps as desired

7) Invite some friends over and enjoy the accolades!

Note: would have looked better if the Tertials were spray-painted but I couldn’t find the energy to do that.

    i’m reading my comment again, and what is missing is the praise for the lamp, too. very good looking, too, in a good looking room, as said above

    Spider lamp, spider lamp does whatever a spiderlamp does. This is beautiful.

    and the problem was that your friends were not coming over to see you since you didn’t have a proper chandelier? what a big mistake!!!!

    what i mean is that your living (or maybe music?) room is great, even without this lamp.
