Manchester’s Giant Lamp Installation Shines a Light on the City’s Rich History
London-based studio Acrylicize recently designed five giant lamp sculptures as part of a public art project for Piccadilly Place, in the city of Manchester, England. Each piece was built to honor and represent a specific time in Manchester’s rich history, as well as celebrate the city’s bright future.

I've loved this thing since I was a kid - it hung outside, under cover on my parents' deck. Everything about it, the dimensions, shape of the drops, is perfect.
