Sundial Chandelier by Maarten de Ceulaer
Introduced during the Milan Salone, Maarten de Ceulaer has designed the "Sundial Chandelier" for the Nilufar Gallery. Made of anodised aluminum disks that seem to float in space "like planets in the universe", the central rod casts a sharp shadow of in different directions, as if, explains Maarten de Ceulaer, "it were illuminated by 6 different suns". "They spiral down the piece to end where they started, like a perfect loop in time. The design is all about rhythym, and each version will play a different song, with the shadows dancing to a different beat." The Sundial Chandelier is developed with and produced by the Belgian company Alton, known for their excellence in aluminum production. Every piece is be signed and numbered.
