With his modern chandelier ‘Seven Up’ the Belgian designer Tim Baute kept at least the nostalgia of the traditional archetype, the materials he used though gave it very minimal and unusual look.

“He used the electricity cables as the central structure. When they bundle up, they form the central core that descends from the ceiling. They then branch off into seven arms. At each end they hold five watt light bulbs mounted on fittings. Fine steel cables attached to a light structure lift the arms, giving them the typical form of the classic chandelier as they hang from the ceiling.”

'Flashmob' by Henny van Nistelrooy

At the Arnhem Fashion Biennale the London based Dutch designer Henny van Nistelrooy presents this beautiful chandelier made of light reflecting discs that conventionally are used in photography.

Inspired by the biennale’s theme SHAPE, Henny approached this theme is by exploring the characteristics of these visually appealing collapsible discs to create three-dimensional forms. “These discs work like a spring mechanism and I have fixed its outward force in different shapes by bonding the fabric on specific points to the spring steel ring”.

The process initiated by making different shapes within the transition from the folded flexible ring to flattened out. This exciting form study is concluded in one shape that makes a perfect building element to create a sphere. The configuration of twelve of these elements makes the giant eye-catching chandelier.

“Working with a material that is taken from a discipline that is so closely related to fashion as photography is, the choice of material seems logical to make a lighting object with that fits within this context.”

The Flashmob chandelier is on show at the Arnhem Fashion Biennale in the pavilion of Royal Artez and is open from 6th of June till 6th of July.
