Weaving their Way

The newest creation to come to fruition via the minds of US designers, Aaron Thomas and Anne Ewen, is the Chandelirium.

A contemporary shadow of a chandelier, the playful yet seriously designed piece resembles what could only be described as a child’s doodle drawing- or for the creative minds- a mammoth cluster of chewing gum.

The designers behind the striking piece are known for their process, used in past designs, whereby they hand-weave and loop strips of re-claimed acrylic to create each unique sculpted pendulum lights.

The self-supporting structure of interwoven clear and white acrylic strips creates a nest of ribbons around a 7" globe in a polished nickel fixture.

Aaron Thomas designed a similar custom piece that was used as a ballroom centerpiece at Tiger Woods’ charity event, “Tiger Jam X” in Los Angeles.

ARTae studio and gallery in Orange County, California, currently houses the Chandelirium. Custom designs available via info@aaronrthomas.com.
