Fall On Your Sword is a creative design team hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Their works vary tremendously in scale and concepts. This particular one that designboom has covered is mind-boggling because they successfully created a functioning pipe organ made from 250 Pringles cans – yes, “once you pop, you can’t stop” Pringles. Part of the inspiration for this project came from the beloved Richard Donner 80’s movie, The Goonies. The story of this gets cooler (nerdier) as we discover more. A stroke from each of the ‘can keys’ produces a recorded sound assigned to that key.
Hanging above the organ is a beautifully crafted chandelier made from 150-silver paint-coated potator crisp casts. When the organ plays, the chandelier chips sway from the motion of the wind from the pipe organ.
