The best way to be introduced to the New Chandelier by Eddy Sykes is to observe it in its closed position. The beautiful pendant lamp takes the appearance of an elaborate plaster plate that's been descended gracefully from the top of the room by cables. It looks like a contemporary adaptation of baroque style ceiling molding.
You will then be so surprised to find that such an elegant and antique-looking sculptural element can completely open up, separating as triangular fragments to reveal golden metal detailing, textured green glass and exposed hinges and hardware. Tiny lightbulbs poke out from this chaotic display, producing and reflecting bright rays. For anyone who simultaneously appreciates the beauty of period pieces and the excitement of 21st century design, the New Chandelier would be an ideal architectural addition to a grand room.
