The light installation is a teardrop-shaped chandelier with deliciously unique lights that celebrate the fascinating nature of raindrops, where no drop is the same as the next. Photographed by Lauren Coleman, the installation was imagined as a whole made of unique pieces: “Each drop is hand blown by artisans and intricately engineered to house the lighting strategy for the chandelier.” Working with UK-based glass-blowers and metal engineers to create the crystal tear-drops, designers fabricated each droplet after careful observation of real raindrops.
One of the most interesting things about watching the eclipse was witnessing the patterns of light as the moon moved in front of the sun, with various effects such as a starburst. World Market has created its own exclusive chandelier resembling that effect. The Brass Starburst Collin Chandelier, priced at $199, is both affordable and memorable. Made of iron with a matte brass finish, this fixture includes nine type B 25-watt light bulbs, offering rays of light that extend across the table.
The project is based on the idea that crystal makes a room more special and creates an outstanding point of reference. The beauty of this custom-made chandelier can be explained by the fact that each tiny piece of crystal features an impressive brilliance that refracts the light into a rainbow of colors spreading inside the room. Giving any room a warm and soft light, the custom-made chandelier becomes a beautiful piece of your personal universe.
Regardless of whether your heart is firmly planted here on the ground or you dream of the universe beyond, the choices for what you hang in your home to shine down on you are abundant.
