The bloown chandelier is a starry display of unlikely origin: reclaimed rooftop tiles, CDs, and chocolate moulds. In a merging of machine and hand, playful synthetic extrusions conjure blown glass and soft-serve ice cream.

A total of six vortexes serve to refract and diffuse light. Their individual dynamism is balanced by opposing modules: each axis supporting one pair. Set against a bespoke xyz tubular frame, the chandelier encourages distinct units to function as a whole. The result is a glasslike symphony.

Each coiled shell is illuminated by a single 4.2 Watt LED bulb. By way of a trailing edge, the bloown chandelier dims from cool and bright to a sleepy warm glow.
