Chandeliers for the Barcelona Pavilion, stainless steel, velvet 2006
The design of the chandeliers is informed by the detailing of the columns and the cleanness of the architecture of the Pavilion. Their folded metal structure is in tension, which is held up using the candles when installed on the column, and the material is stainless steel to match. The Barcelona Pavilion by candlelight accentuates and multiplies the reflections of light on the marble, the steel, the glass and the water and creates a place of contemplation and celebration.
