Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. January 09th , 2018.
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.
Chandeliers are gorgeous in today’s interior design. You have the choice of keeping the traditional look of the past or starting a new trend of your own! For those that build their own fixture, ensure that you use the proper electrical wiring and non flammable supplies for your chandelier masterpiece. Chandeliers are just one more way to make your home dining experience a true treat.
“The drop itself is constructed of two parts: the brass screw cap, which houses the light, and the hand-blown crystal reflecting the light to create puddles on the floor below. 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.”
Jewelry for the home. Beautiful draping beads, glittering metals, crystals that catch the light – all are elements of fine jewelry, as well as fine lighting fixtures. Like a vintage broach, a light fixture adds that special touch to each room. Like diamonds, crystals on a chandelier reflect the light and sparkle. Light fixtures are the finishing touch to a room adding glimmer to catch the eye, the same way jewelry is for an outfit. Lighting, like jewelry, can push the envelope and be adventurous.
