Hong Kong born jewellery designer Winnie Lui has put her unusual and intriguing style to a new chandelier from Innermost.
November 21st, 2008
The Winnie Lui chandelier has to be one of the most unusual lighting pieces in the world. Each chandelier is an explosion of ‘bits and pieces’ and bric-a-brac collected by Lui.
From small shoes and chains to kitchen utensils and children’s toys – Lui has scoured junk shops and flea markets to find these everyday objects and turn them into something more akin to an art installation than a light fitting.
There are only 200 of the chandeliers in existence, 100 in white and 100 in black. The white gives a sense of magical fantasy, while the black can seem almost foreboding, but entirely captivating. Each light continuously offers up an exciting new discovery.
Each individually made design is about 1.5m in height and 1m wide. The black would be quite at home in a trendy wine bar, while the white would create a stunning focal point for a home or restaurant.
The Winnie Lui chandelier from Innermost is definitely a statement, but a statement that keeps you coming back for one more look, exciting a sense of childhood fascination.
