Sculptural bespoke brass chandelier.
In addition to the compact version with shorter body, after many customized shorter arms I have made a version with a diameter of 120 cm / 48″.
The Orbitale collection is modular. This version is made when there is the need of being not so wide but keeping the sculptural aspect.
See the schematic at the last photo.
Arms are balanced with a heavy cast brass sphere and are rotating on the stem in an orbital movement.
In order to get perfect balancing the sphere is filled with sand to reach the point of no leverage.
Shades are in thick brass, if left in natural brass they are beautifully finished by hand to meet the texture of drum cymbals. Otherwise lacquered with powder paint with eggshell semi matte finish in either ivory or black.
Shades are connected to the arm with a pivot joint to give different possibilities of light.
Arms are 12 mm diameter with 1.5 mm wall connected with female thread to insure the right rigidity. Stem is made with a rotating system was made to have 180 degrees on each arm (any position is reachable see video) for safety reason. This way the chandelier can be rotated lit.
Although it provides mostly ambiance light reflected to the ceiling by the shade that acts as a reflector, there is a hole to give some direct light. Therefore it works on a dining table or a counter, however his best use is the living room or a large hall.
Colors of shades standard are ivory, black and natural brass. Natural patina bras is standard
In order to uniform a warm light output brass shades, even the lacquered ones, are left in natural brass. This provides a warm ambiance light.
Arms and body: Made in natural solid brass and hand finished.
Important: A person familiar with the construction and operation of the product must install this fixture.
This chandelier is current production made to order. Upon request the chandelier can be wired to have double circuit. Please write me for any special size requirement.
The outline of the shades was designed to summarize and recreate the 1950s chandelier from Arteluce and Stilnovo but it does not belong to either and it is an original design. The item is listed “in the style of” in order to facilitate the buyers research.
Color of shades. Length of central stem can be adjusted to designer’s request. Electrical part to fit your country socket. On customized size, schematic will be sent for final approval.
