With his Basket Chandelier Marco Dessí cunningly merged traditional chandelier elements, techniques and materials that waited for a stunning premiere. Angel Monzon, owner of Vessel Gallery in London saw Superdesign Art fair as the perfect spot to launch Dessí’s Basket. The only problem: A mundane “product” does not allow you into an art fair.
Angel and Marco put their heads around that challenge and came up with the spectacular finish version of the Basket Chandelier 2010 Limited Edition: smoked glass, blaxck ropes and massive silver plating, not varnished to honestly age with its owner. So suddenly there hung the Basket amongst works of established artists.
Flying to London economy class, with the designer and 3 cubic meters of chandeliers, that is a road-trip of a kind.
