Excellent X-Wing light fitting

There's a Dark Side joke in this somewhere. We just don't want to Force it.

This achingly-brilliant X-Wing light fitting is the creation of Manchester-based 3D artist Benjamin Rice and the Northern Backdrop interior design group.

Commissioned by the organisers of urban cycling show Spin London, the X-Wing is constructed from the frames of the classic children's bike the Raleigh Grifter and BMXs. After Rice mapped out the light in a 3D model, a welder gave new life to eBay-sourced cycles.

Going on display in Manchester soon, an up-cycled Tie Fighter is now in the works.
