Good design probes the dimensions of harmony and vitality.

Australian designer Ilan El [2] created this beautiful Rain pendant chandelier with the goal of engaging the senses through sight and sound. Rain [2] is an interactive chandlier which doubles as a windchime: moving the rods creates a delicate string of sound, which are accompanied by rippling reflections of light. The lights inside hang on the electrical cords that power them, and while they aren’t overtly sustainable, the choice of both recyclable material (aluminum) and playful/engaging functionality makes the lights a beacon of good design.
