This Chandelier is a custom design for the owners of a beautiful private home on the “Noordereiland” ,a small Island in the river the Maas, in Rotterdam.
The house is build very close to the famous “Hefbrug”, an old railway lift bridge.
Inspired by this bridge with its crossed steel structure and by the ambiance of the “Noordereiland” with the large vessels passing by on the river Romy Kühne designed a steel frame build up out of 3 rings,
in which glasses of original, industrial “Bullseye” lamp fixtures are placed. The bullseye is a watertight fixture often used on ships and vessels.
With its 21 arms and glasses, its industrial powder coating and its large measurements: ø1200mm and height of 1000mm, this chandelier forms a real eye catcher in the entrance hall of the house.
In the lampshade Kühne used 21 small LED light bulbs of 0,3Watt each, so the whole chandelier burns at only 6,3 Watt. A monumental design but with a very friendly electrical bill.
