Flame (2013)


This site specific chandelier was commissioned by a private client for a house in Cadaques on the Spanish Costa Brava coast. The visual theme of the house was loosely based around a Morrocan aesthetic with bare plaster walls, stone work and tiles. The chandelier was to be placed above a long dining table created from a single slice taken from the trunk of a north African tree.

Using carefully selected vintage amber glassware with a dining function a linear light was composed reflecting traditional Moroccan clustered lighting. I wanted to instill  feelings of warm Mediterranean evening sunlight. The composition of the chandelier is based on the flickering shape of a flame with a warm dense luminous body giving off  streams of light.
