"Gulp" by Tim Fishlock is a lampshade made from "three thousand translucent drinking straws interwoven to form a dense, spherical lampshade. Made from one continuous length of interconnected straws, you could – if you possessed Dyson-like suction – put one end in a drink and gulp it down through the other. Each piece takes seven days to make and is made to order. Gulp is available in a strictly limited edition of 50."
I need to know where to get some unsnipped drinking straws...and Dyson-like suction!
