• Vitra Miniatures Chandelier | Paola Pivi.

    Posted on 27th July, by Dana Tomić Hughes in installations, product design. 4 Comments


    The ‘Nice Ball’ (funny name) by Italian artist Paola Pivi, is a chandelier containing 80 iconic design furniture miniatures which are attached to an aluminum structure. Each light measures approximately 700 mm (28″) in diameter, made from a unique selection of the miniature iconic seats from the Vitra Design Museum. When lit, the light bulb within the sphere casts dazzling shadows on walls, allowing the viewer to experience these iconic designs in exaggerated 2D and 3D format.

    And just in case that’s not enough iconic chair porn for you, check out the poster I spotted on Daily Icon yesterday. ‘Eye Exam’ by Joel Pirela from Blue Ant Studio. Love it!
