Made from shiny metal and flickering crystals, just like your average chandelier, “Stairway to Heaven” is an illuminated ladder flipped upside down. Designed by Bertjan Pot, a recent graduate from the Design Academy Eindhoven, this fun repurposed low-energy luminaire will easily become the centerpiece of any room.

Made from one standard folding safety-ladder and some low-energy LED lights, Stairway to Heaven was commisioned for a theater’s cafe not far from Pot’s studio in Eindhoven.

The winner of this year’s Frame-Moooi Award, this brilliant luminaire is now selling at DHPH. The chandelier comes in 3 sizes, featuring 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 steps and all models can be ordered with regular light bulbs or energy saving LED lights, here.
