The design is made of anodised aluminum disks with a strong glow of the light that makes them look almost spherical. A striking sharp shadow of the central rod is cast in different directions, as if it were illuminated by 6 different suns.
The shadows spiral down the piece to end where they started, like a perfect loop in time. “The design is all about rhythym, and each version will play a different song, with the shadows dancing to a different beat” says Maarten De Ceulaer to Archipanic.
The limited edition series comes in different versions: from gold to silver and in gold-to-silver gradients. The chandelier is developed with and produced by the Belgian company Alton, known for their excellence in aluminum production. Every piece will be signed and numbered.
