Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. October 19th , 2017.
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.
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.
The impressive dimension of the Swarovski Crystal Chandelier makes for a perfect integration within the Palace of Versailles. Displaying a minimalist elegance, the piece adds a valuable visual contrast to the chamber and is particularly interesting to observe in detail. The installation descending from the ceiling resembles a gold chain necklace; it is no wonder that the grand Palace of Versailles inspired Swarovski to create jewellery at a large scale. Have a look at the video below for a better understanding of the project and its context!
The ribbons of translucent silicone imitate rows of tubes that contribute to the perception of the musical instruments theme: “We`ve continued our experiments with silicone as we love the translucency and color overlaying effects that this material provides. And its flexibility is important as well“, the two designers stated. Anna and Alexey started their creative collaboration in Moscow more than 10 years ago. Their area of expertise includes product design and light design, as well as interior and transportation design. How would you comment on this particular item in their portfolio?
