Studio Henny van Nistelrooy has designed a captivating chandelier made of light reflecting discs that conventionally are used in photography. Henny has been exploring the characteristics of these visually appealing collapsible discs to create three-dimensional forms. “These discs work like a spring mechanism and I have fixed its outward force in different shapes by bonding the fabric on specific points to the spring steel ring”. The process initiated by making different shapes within the transition from the folded flexible ring to flattened out. This exciting form study is concluded in one shape that makes a perfect building element to create a sphere. The configuration of twelve of these elements makes the giant eye-catching chandelier.
