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.  

Maarten de Ceulaer, Leather Collection

Le designer belge Maarten de Ceulaer a présenté à l'occasion du salon de Milan 2013 une "Leather Collection" dans la veine de ses travaux de fin d'études à la Design Academy Eindhoven (exposés en 2008). Des tiroirs tendus de cuir, dissociables les uns des autres, s'assemblent pour créer des combinaisons variées. Maarten de Ceulaer a créé le design, tandis que l'artisan Ralph Baggaley, spécialiste du travail du cuir, a réalisé la fabrication de la "Leather Collection". In the same vein as his Design Academy Eindhoven's graduation work in 2008, Belgian designer Maarten de Ceulaer introduced his "Leather Collection" during the Milan design week 2013. The separate leather, suitcase-like drawers can be stacked and arranged to create various combinations. Maarten de Ceulaer designed and created the "Leather Collection" in collaboration with leather artisan Ralph Baggaley.
