Located in the Royal Bank Chambers building, Collins St, Melbourne, built in 1941, Deco chandelier is a tribute to the era’s eclectic influences.
A thirteen metre tall Art Deco style chandelier – using contemporary materials mixed with Egyptian and Japanese influences.
To maximise illumination, the chandelier uses a clear film material imprinted with symmetrical patterns that reflect the Art Deco design characteristics. All components were custom-made over a six month production process, followed by a thirteen hour installation to suspend the chandelier from the ceiling. A pulley system concealed in the ceiling allows the raising and lowering of the chandelier for cleaning and to replace light bulbs if required.
The result is a spectacular modern addition to the building that fits in with the style and heritage of the original architecture.
