This thing is extremely cool – check out Swedish designer Jonas Wannfor’s Krystall Chandelier:
I love the new-age look of this fixture! Â I really want to put a lux meter near it and see what kind of output it has.
It’s essentially a big fiber optic chandelier – the light pump is hidden up inside the aluminum cowling on the top there, and the light refracts through the acrylic rods. Â Each rod is heated to create some little facets or fractures to make the rods glow brighter. Â Pretty awesome! Â Very new age.
I highly recommend checking out Jonas Wannfors’ website, regardless of the fact that there is nothing there. Â You can check out another Jonas Wannfors’ project, The Swedes, which is an artisticÂ collaborativeÂ he started with Jessica Fryklund and Love NeuschÃ¼tz.
Krystall Chandelier is a bit way out of my price range, at $1395.00, at Y Lighting. Â They are offering free shipping though, there’s that. Â Someday I’ll make enough to be able to buy stuff like that!
