Project Description

Underwater Love

Making the Met waterproof

A chandelier in a bathroom is a nice thing. Normally the humidity is far below the critical level so there is little reason to worry about IP-ratings. But when Thomas Riley Studio approached us for a Met chandelier above a free-standing bath tub and shower our safety-sense kicked in.
We realised that keeping humidity at bay was much more difficult than making the whole fixture completely waterproof. This resulted not only in an exciting testing procedure but of course in a stunning fixture that opens up many new ways of application.
One starts to think whether the chandelier is the highlight here or the magnificent view? Surely Thomas Riley Studio did a great job in putting this great ensemble together.
