The detail of the 'Nomad' interactive chandelier by Beau McClellan

Reminiscent of a luminous tropical fish suspended mid-air, this highly-sculptural and undoubtedly striking interactive LED light installation has been developed by the British lighting brand, Beau McClellan. Composed of no less than 200 individually controlled, glossy mirror-coated glass components, the dramatic 5-meters-long ‘Nomad’ chandelier was originally presented at the last year’s edition Designjunction – London Design Festival and this months, it will be on show during the London Art Fair (18-22 January).

More about the installation:

 

‘Nomad is an impressive 5m long lighting installation made up of 200 individual components, using the studio’s signature glass mirror-coating finish, reflecting the interior by day and becoming semi-transparent at night, when illuminated by LEDs. Each of the LEDs used in this stunning piece can be individually controlled to create numerous colour effects and variations using a touch screen, ipad or iphone. The light from the LED is cleverly diffused through frosted hand-ground crystal which magnifies the light, creating warm pastel shades of colour.’
