We initially developed the Plant Chandelier, for our solo exhibition’The Industrial Essence of Kranen/Gille’ in Het Noordbrabants Museum. We created several design items including the chandelier, which has been recently acquired for the permanent collection of the museum.
The philosophy behind its design is the imitation of nature’s architectural structures, while indulging in the poetry of their beauty. Inspired by the linear patterns of Karl Blossfeldt’s plant photography, and unrestricted by cables or wires, the chandelier is free to elegantly flow towards the ceiling. Its silhouette follows the anatomy of sun-kissed tree branches, with a golden glow, which converge into frosted domes of light.
