Moooi Coppelia Chandelier
We’ve already featured this chandelier but we love it so much we’re showing it off again! The Coppélia design is a new interpretation of a classic chandelier created by established Japanese designer Arihiro Miyake. The design was inspired by a ballerina’s sinuous moment and creates a delicate image in the air. Powered by a low voltage current, the design has no need for additional wires.
Youthful is the most appropriate adjective to describe this collection of hanging lamps designed by Benjamin Hubert. The inspiration for the design came from roof tiles and they were also the idea behind the shape of the single elements which are attached by hand. The scales are made in a semi-rigid rubbery material which can be machine washed at 30 degrees. The indoor lamp collection is available in five different shapes and sizes and can be hung either using a cable or fitted directly to the ceiling rose.
