A Satellite Dish Chandelier Shines Light on Outmoded TechS

If you've finally decided to get rid of your satellite TV in favor of just streaming everything, you're going to have some unneeded hardware on your hands. Namely a compact dish that can either be repurposed as a bird bath, or this fantastic chandelier if you can round up a few more from around the neighborhood.

This custom creation serves as the centerpiece for a conference room, beaming light down onto a large table instead of collecting invisible transmissions from orbit. Designed by Crotia-based design and architecture agency Brigada for its sister company Bruketa&Žinić OM's revamped offices, the hanging sculpture was inspired by spying and other hush-hush secret operations. Instead, it was so popular they named the conference room after it.

As for what to do with your old cable box? Maybe you can re-purpose it as a desk clock? After all, it probably still shows the time, right? [Bruketa&Žinić OM via designboom]
