Following the huge success of Marco Dessí’s Basket Chandelier we decided to come up with a smaller version of this lamp for hallways or staircases. It premiered in September 2011 in Vienna’s Museum of Applied Arts.
Inspired by the shape of traditional lanterns, Dessí was weaving a basket-like structure using hexagonally bent glass tubes in combination with silken cords. The ceiling fixture is a versatile extension of the original Basket-series enabling application in low-ceiling rooms.
The silken ropes leave room to create bespoke variants to match the ambience of the perspective room.
