This archetype of the Jugendstil chandelier was designed by Josef Hoffmann for the Werkbund Exhibition in Cologne 1914 and is regarded one of the milestones in Austrian design of the early 20th century. Therefore the prototype is still on display in Vienna’s Museum of Applied Arts.
The chandelier is made of brass with a nickel finish. The crystal beads are made from hand cut lead free beads in contrast to wonderful large stones in the main rim. This alternates with a cast floral décor. With almost 100 kg of weight it is one of our heaviest chandeliers compared to its size.
