The Valerie, My Crystal Sister chandelier is a bittersweet creation. Created through the crystallization of DNA fragments, it represents the sister that Dutch designer Lucas Maassen never had. In fact, the name Valerie would have been his own name had he been born a girl.

Made in collaboration with medical company Roche, the Valerie, My Crystal Sister chandelier was crafted over the course of several months. According to Design Milk, “He was able to crystallize synthetic DNA fragments present in his parents and then replicated this into glass in collaboration with Vienna-based crystal manufacturer Lobmeyr.” Comprised of one thousand of these glass orbs, the end result is enchantingly ethereal.

The Valerie, My Crystal Sister chandelier is currently part of the Confrontations: Contemporary Dutch Design exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum.
