AT FIRST LIGHT

Singapore Tatler - - OBJET D’ART -

oth­ing quite el­e­vates the grandeur of a space than a mas­ter­piece cre­ation such as a pair of rose quartz crys­tal chan­de­liers by Dim­itri Ste­fanov. Known for his ex­trav­a­gant one-of-a-kind de­signs, the Lon­don-based artist has built an un­ri­valled rep­u­ta­tion for cre­at­ing and restor­ing the most ex­quis­ite chan­de­liers—many of which can be found in the homes of the world’s most af­flu­ent and in­flu­en­tial, roy­alty in­cluded. Th­ese rose quartz chan­de­liers are his lat­est work, and fea­ture a hand­crafted bronze frame with four tiers of crys­tal drops—all 175 of them carved by hand—that ren­ders the hefty dec­o­ra­tive lights stun­ning from ev­ery an­gle. When ad­mired from below, each chan­de­lier re­veals a sin­gle, solid pear-shaped rose quartz hang­ing from its cen­tre. Choos­ing to work with pre­cious stones in­stead of tra­di­tional crys­tals, Ste­fanov in­tended for the chan­de­liers to em­anate a soft glow when the lights are switched on. Rose quartz boasts sim­i­lar meta­phys­i­cal qual­i­ties as rock crys­tals, which ex­plains why the chan­de­liers also ra­di­ate a heal­ing and restora­tive en­ergy. Mea­sur­ing 90cm high and 100cm wide, the stun­ning pair of chan­de­liers makes for a dra­matic state­ment piece in any room and will surely shine a light on any cel­e­bra­tion.
