The piece

The Ni­a­gara Chan­de­lier com­prises a cas­cade of 300 porce­lain but­ter­fly fairies – some left white, oth­ers fin­ished with a glit­ter­ing golden lus­tre. These are sus­pended from del­i­cately lit fi­bre-op­tic wires, giv­ing this stun­ning pen­dant an ethe­real, whim­si­cal look rem­i­nis­cent of a dra­matic, shim­mer­ing wa­ter­fall.

The col­lec­tion was first launched in 2007, and is the re­sult of a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Lladro and Ger­man de­signer Bodo Sper­lein on a project called Re-Cy­c­los, where renowned artists and de­sign­ers were in­vited to re­design ob­jects

The back­ground

for a new pur­pose. Pre­vi­ously pure white, this new col­lec­tion fea­tures a com­plex lus­tre tech­nique in gold adding an op­u­lent fin­ish.

Avail­able in var­i­ous di­am­e­ters (0.6, 0.8, 1.1 and 2 me­tres), the Ni­a­gara Chan­de­lier is avail­able lo­cally in the UAE through Tana­gra and costs Dh155,600.
