Plant Chandelier (2023)
Made by Moooi
The philosophy behind the Plant Chandelier is the imitation of nature’s 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 Plant Chandelier is free to elegantly bloom towards the ceiling. Its silhouette follows the anatomy of sun-kissed tree branches, with a golden glow, which converges into frosted domes of light.
Plant Chandelier was designed by Kranen/Gille. Their designs mostly start their existence as scrapheap sketches in order to keep an open eye on the product itself. Working in this way enables Kranen and Gille to design freely before products end up in CAD programs, a feature that we hope one can feel when looking at a Kranen/Gille product.
