I shall be spending August ‘staycation’-ing in London, enjoying the empty roads, varying my routines, doing fun stuff as D takes some holiday time and the usual daily pressures are eased.
Some tidy up housekeeping, with a little reposting of not-to-be-lost favourites, is as close as I shall be getting to blogging over the summer break. Normal life here will be resuming in early September.
Today, I commence with the first of the tidy up posts – from an email I’ve been holding onto since April – about these lovely Calliope Pendants, seen during Milan Design Week.
I was rather taken with these in the multiple, though I’m not sure I have a physical space for them in my upcoming house project plans. Nevertheless, they sure are pretty on the interiors-eye, aren’t they?
Amsterdam, April 4th 2017. At Instituto dei Ciechi, Marcel Wanders presents ‘Calliope’ a modular chandelier created in collaboration with London-based lighting design company, Wonderglass.
Inspired by Japanese calligraphy, the dynamic chandelier made of blown Venetian glass gracefully creates spatial and versatile light installations when clustered or by itself. As a unique modular chandelier, this adaptable fixture can expand to create full ceiling and room installations. With oblate spheroids shapes and synthetic hair brushes, ‘Calliope’ is a timeless floating illuminating pendant that swings slightly with the wind.
Enjoy the summer breeze 💋
