This chandelier was strongly inspired by its location: It lightens the main spiral staircase in Megaron Athens Concert Hall. It became our longest chandelier with almost 20 meter drop over 5 levels.
It was finished and delivered just in time for the opening of the 2004 Olympic Games.
Despite its monumental proportions it proved a good model for residential projects.
The original version bears triangular crystal prisms, smaller versions were made with round rods of crystal in the spiral elements.
The smallest version ever done was only 250 cm high, still keeping its expression.

This wall bracket was made to match the magnificent Megaron Spiral Chandelier that was commissioned for the Megaron of Music Concert Hall in Athens.
On a back plate of nickel-plated brass sit delicate chains of individually linked crystal. Covering this column of crystal the namesake spiral element is mounted. This is made of two double bars of brass which are precisely bent. Between those curved bars the crystal rods are set and fixed with small cotter pins and secured with wires.
A demanding task was to transfer the monumental design of the original spiral into such a tine scale.
