Next time you visit the Palace of Versailles, be on the lookout for this impressive permanent contemporary Swarovski chandelier envisioned by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The Gabriel Chandelier measures 12 meters in hight and weighs half a tonne. Moreover, the installation is composed of 800 crystal modules, threaded around a stainless steel skeleton containing a led lighting system.
Malleable Metals: Modern home retailer, 2Modern’s, top lighting trend for 2016 is the malleable pendant or chandelier. Because each customer’s lighting needs are different, 2Modern has expanded its malleable lighting collection in order to provide “a lamp that can be tailored to spatial needs.” On-trend examples include Rich Brilliant Willing’s Palindrome Chandelier or Moooi’s Heracleum
Not only are these chandeliers striking in appearance, they also cast interesting shadows on the surrounding walls. 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.
