3 Phenomenal Chandeliers Lead Lighting Design Product Wars

Power wars are not just about Wall Street. Designer Pages, an online source for manufacturers of design pieces for interior designers and the design-loving public, is sponsoring Product Wars of its own in several interior and industrial design categories. As lighting is one of my favorite design areas, I'll share with you the spectacular top 3 leaders in this category...

Product Wars Lighting Design Number 1:  Niagara Chandelier by Lladró

A fantastic version of a waterfall with 300 porcelain sculptured butterflies hanging from the latest fiber optic wires, emitting a subtle light that makes it seem as though the wings are really flying.  Yes, Lladró is still flying, and high, with this 9+ foot diameter chandelier, now leading the Product Wars with a 75 percent positive rating.

Product Wars Lighting Design Number 2 : Hope by Luceplan USA

Named after the Hope diamond, the Hope lighting design, by Francisco Gomez Paz and Paolo Rizzatto, does look like a huge sparkling diamond in the sky.  It is no accident that it looks that way.  Combining modern, lightweight materials, the designers used their mathematical skills to create a fresnel lense on each piece of polycarbonate film, making innumerable microprisms that infinitely produce offspring from the light source. Hope, a magnificent old style chandelier made with a modern, light weight technology, comes in second, so far, in the lighting design Product Wars with 68 percent positive votes.

Even in daylight, the chandelier is magnificent.

Product Wars Lighting Design Number 3: Mercury Suspension Light by Artemide

The pebbles dance mercurially, reflecting natural and indirect halogen lighting beneath the simple aluminum disc.  Molded thermoplastics make up the pebble shapes, which are finished in crome and mirror each other as well as people and things in the environment.  A regular mesmerizer!  All electrical cords are clear; cables are thin stainless steel.  The Mercury Suspension Light has hit number 3 in the Product Wars for lighting design at 66 percent positive.
