Rat Chandelier


We really enjoyed some of the anomalous products displayed at the Non Fiction Design Collectives exhibit at ICFF this year. We love the perverse. And that’s just what Non Fiction Design Collective does. They manipulate ordinary pieces: lamps, chandeliers and porcelain bits; into a disturbing household that you could just imagine Edgar Allen Poe inhabiting. The Rattus Norvegicus Rex chandelier features four large rats with tails entwined to allow them to dangle like plump, furry crystals. Each gingerly grasping a bunch of red glass berries in their mouths, as if presenting a gift to the Brown Rat King himself!
