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.
For those who remember the space race, the Paige 12-Light Sputnik Chandelier from Wayfair is reminiscent of the Soviet first satellite in orbit in 1957. With so many bulbs visible, this piece may require softer and lower wattage bulbs to overpower a room while still remaining a focal point. With a price of $349, this fixture is more than just a functional piece; it’s one that will remain a timeless reminder of man’s pursuit to conquer space.
Russian designers Anna Strupinskaya and Alexey Ivashkevich have presented their new product Symphony Lamp Chandelier during Milan Design Week 2014. The concept of the chandelier explores the connection between light and sound waves and their resemblance. For this project, light, color and sound are visualized in three interlaced spatial ribbons.
