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.
When you see a light sculpture designed to increase the visual appeal of a room and define its luminous character, you stop on your way to admire it. It’s the case of the Raindrop chandelier known as “The Pour”, a modern light sculpture meant to illuminate and beautify its chosen location in Tribeca, New York City. Lisa Hinderdael and Dara Huang of Design Haus Liberty worked on the design that was supposed to create a unique vibe in a living room featuring exposed industrial columns on either end of a dropped beam. According to the design brief, the light sculpture was supposed to “create an architectural relationship with the space” while beautifully hanging off the exposed beam.
Upgraded Industrial: one of the lighting trends for 2016 is Lamps Plus’ “upgraded industrial”. According to a company press release, “the warehouse-inspired-movement-cum-mainstream design staple is seeing a bit of refinement.” Look for modern industrial lighting featuring rich tones and alternative metals. Don’t be afraid to invest in the industrial trend either — the look is here to stay for the next few years.
