What Would a Chandelier Look Like if Were Overtaken by Spiders?
Marcel Wanders, uber designer of the past five years, has created this recent addition to the stable of fantastic, high-concept lights for Flos. The concept is to take an old school chandelier and treat it as it were in a haunted house with some overzealous spiders which had made the most lethal web imaginable. The result is a lamp tightly wrapped with a thin, white fiber that, I’m assuming in Marcel Wander’s opinion, looks a bit like a Zeppelin which is the name he gave the piece. From the image I’ve shown, I don’t see it, but explore its profile and, in fact, you have a Zeppelin. As witty as Mr. Wanders is with his designs I’m surprised he has not come out with the much heavier limited edition which he might call the “Lead Zeppelin”. Just a thought.
