If you liked the Hilden & Diaz fairytale chandelier, you’re going to love these creations by John Winstead. His Organic Shadows chandeliers came about as an artistic dream to create interactive and natural works of art, and are designed to create a communion with nature in any space by casting soft, forest-like shadows on any interior space. The chandeliers come in two styles, Mandrake and Willow, with one being more antler-like and the other a bit softer and mossier. Both are lit with LED lights for maximum energy efficiency, and create a diffuse glow along with the shadows they create. Winstead designed these pieces with the desire to reconnect with nature by using natural, organic materials that would evoke a woodland space, but still maintain a modern and sophisticated aesthetic that’s suitable for an art gallery or performance hall.
