Plant Chandelier: Inspired by nature
The design duo Kranen/Gille created several design items for design label Moooi, including the Plant Chandelier, which has been recently acquired for the permanent collection of the Noord Brabants Museum in The Netherlands.
The chandelier spreads its branches in all directions. The philosophy behind it is the imitation of nature’s architectural 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 chandelier is free to elegantly flow towards the ceiling. Its silhouette follows the anatomy of sun-kissed tree branches, with a golden glow, which converge into frosted domes of light.
