If Edgar Allan Poe had to design a chandelier, it would be something on the lines of Forms in Nature. Don’t let the almost macabre design fool you, as the chandelier has been designed keeping in mind the modern design connoisseur.
Conceptualized by Hilden & Diaz, the chandelier seeks inspiration from the drawings of Ernst Haeckel, the German biologist, naturalist, and philosopher, though you maybe forgiven for thinking of something more sinister. The theme of mirroring is quite predominant and the artwork reflects a dense foliage that forms a 360 degrees circle around the light source.
When the light is further intensified, the entire space gets engulfed in the shadows of trees and bushes to provide a surreal effect.
Says the design studio:
“The shadows engulfs the room and transforms the walls into unruly shadows of branches, bushes and gnarled trees. Mirrorings are thrown out upon the walls and ceilings and provide weak Rorschach-like hints of faces, life and flow of consciousness. Dimming the lights transforms the installation and one senses a
weak fire burning deep in the center of the forest.”
