Project Description

Super Home

A Met for a Super Home with Ferris Rafauli

We are proud to have collaborated with Ontario-based Ferris Rafauli, owner of his own name-sake luxury design and construction firm on the super-home of his most prominent client. For this project we created our 2nd largest installation of the Metropolitan chandelier to date. Only second to the original at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
With over 380 cm in diameter this really dominates the Grand Room of the mansion, illuminating the client’s cherished custom Bösendorfer concert grand piano. The golden custom finish contributes perfectly to Ferris’s signature Modern Art Deco style.
The greatest challenge beside the tight deadline was installing top-down from a 12 meter high skylight. A team of three installed for full three days on location.
