Bellsize Park Mansion
The rebirth of a milestone design
David Collins asked us for a long fixture over a table for an impressive dining room in North London mansion. Ice and sparkle was the general motive of inspiration. Just month ealier we finished the restoration of the Wall Sconces for the Metropolitan Opera in New York so the design was just at the tip of the fingers of our craftsmen.
Extrapolating the original design of Hans Harald Rath from 1966 into the 3rd dimension created not only a simple yet stunning light fixture but also opened the door to an incredibly versatile design template.
The frame is constructed so thoughtful that it took only one person to install the whole 3,5 m fixture. A more this-worldly benefit of the design line is that the metal grids with crystals can be easily removed and processed in a dishwasher.
The basic concept of this fixture now allowed to create any cubic shape with this icy-sparkly look.
