Contemporary Chandelier

Using excess materials from the build of a private residential project, I proposed the design of a beautiful cascading chandelier to be displayed in two double height void spaces at either end of the structure. I was inspired by the ethereal lighting exhibitions of Bruce Monroe as many of his pieces reflect a natural subject such as light 'raining' into a space. After installing a cardboard prototype the client could adjust the design and live with it for several days to see how they liked it or if they wanted to modify it. After many different configurations the aluminium sections were sent away to have the light slots milled into them and the rest plywood top plugs constructed on site. The end result is an evenly spaced cluster of these chandelier pendants which hang elegantly in the day and illuminate the space beautifully and effectively (with a dimable feature) at night.
