Paz & Rizzatto’s “Hope” Chandelier

A modernist take on the traditional crystal chandelier, designers Francisco Gomez Paz and Paolo Rizzatto undertook an interesting challenge: to develop a new and contemporary approach for a timeless design.  Much like a traditional chandelier, Hope uses hundreds of delicate crystal pieces to disseminate an isolated prismatic effect to light it reflects.  But unlike traditional chandeliers which use angular, heavy chunks of crystal, the Hope chandelier shapes extra-thin poly-carbonate sheets onto lenses to give them the same optical qualities as glossy, warped glass.  With a focus on light design and an emphasis on heavy science, this light and elegant chandelier is the kind of thing an eclectic interior designer craves when they think of a modern renovation. – via
