Talented welder Matt Ludwig recently installed this Drum Kit Chandelier as the central focus of JJ's Red Hots, a restaurant featuring hot dogs and located in Charlotte, North Carolina. When the place was first being built, co-founder and friend Jonathan Luther immediately kept an eye out for a great place to feature Ludwig's incredible abilities as a welder.
According to JJ's official blog, they selected a drum fixture for the center of the restaurant as a tribute to the former restaurant on the site, The Drum. From rough sketches in January to the final product seen here, Ludwig's installation transforms a generally bulky set of equipment into a delicate and elegant lighting system. Props to Ludwig and the JJ's Red Hots team for coming up with such an impressive and inventive design element for restaurant visitors to enjoy.
