Gallery: Hilden & Diaz’s Forms in Nature Chandelier Transforms Rooms in...

 

This stunning Forms in Nature Chandelier projects a 360-degree forest of shadows that transforms any room into a fairy tale landscape. Inspired by drawings made by German biologist and naturalist Ernst Haeckel, designers Hilden & Diaz created an intricate bundle of entangled roots, bushes and tree branches that shines from within.

The designers mirrored the forest-like sculpture around its horizontal and central axis to form a full circle around the light source. The mirrorings are thrown onto the wall and create almost Rorschach-like patterns whose shapes feed on ones imagination. Besides the shape of the chandelier, light intensity also affects the overall atmosphere—when the light is dimmed the chandelier creates an image of a weak fire burning in the forest. It is left to a person’s imagination to read the over-sized shadows as a forest gently lit by the flickering camp fire, or a terrifying underworld filled with monsters lurking behind the roots and bushes.
