The sculptural design mimics a tree and its roots, twisted and intertwined in a way that looks sporadic. However, this design is actually mirrored around its horizontal axis — a trademark in many designs by this Danish duo. In Forms in Nature, the mirroring resembles the relationship between our world and the mystery of the underworld.

What’s your décor style: Depending on your home, the dining area may be where your family congregates on Sundays for a huge dinner, or it may be an intimate area for you and a few friends.

To replicate the nature of raindrops, no two drops are blown identical. The name “The Pour” derives from the distinctive shape that the chandelier forms: an exaggeration of the dramatic motion of water pouring out of a carafe. Designed by forming a grid mimicking how puddles ripple outward in concentric circles, each teardrop is hung to brass pipes of varying lengths. Placed strategically on the grid, the teardrops lock into the mirrored base that fits seamlessly between the two existing columns. The mirrored base reflects the teardrops endlessly into the sky above and when lit. The chandelier echoes rain frozen in time with ephemeral puddles overlaid on the floor below.”
