These flowers dangle delicately, but you cannot pluck them. They're made of precision-etched metal, and contain an electrified light source.

Created by Studio Tord Boontje, these strange chandeliers are part of a collection called "Future Flora." The designer, Boontje, said that he created them to suggest a strange new species - a hybrid of flower and light.

I'm waiting for the model that can fold itself into a throwing star and act as a guard flower for my Triffid seed collection.
