Innovative design meets sustainable technology in this intricately designed solar-powered chandelier. The work, created by Dutch artist and designer Jeroen Verhoeven, is composed of approximately 500 butterfly-shaped photovoltaic cells. The amazing artwork simulates the illusion of insects gathering together toward a bright and cozy light source.
