MARCEL WANDERS’ COCOON CHANDELIER DUBBED ‘ZEPPELIN’

Amsterdam’s Marcel Wanders has designed this stunning chandelier made of resin fibres which are air-blown around the spinning frame of the lamp to give it a light and airy appearance, almost as if it was floating above you like a Zeppelin.  Not to worry though – the reference to the Zeppelin doesn’t mean that it’s flammable, but refers to a childhood experience where the designer created a wooden rocking lamp that burned down his room!  His creations are now perfected by years of design experience, of course, and this chandelier in particular was inspired by his uncle, Achille Castiglioni, whose lamps were once ranked among the 10 best in the world.  http://www.marcelwanders.com/products/lighting/zeppelin
