Drape Circle 28 Chandelier now officially in the SkLO : LIT lighting collection
SkLO is pleased to announce that it has officially added the DRAPE CIRCLE 28 Chandelier design to the SkLO : LIT lighting collection. Produced as a custom / bespoke fixture design for select clients and showrooms over the last two years, it is now a production design ready-to-order.
Originally developed as a custom project design, part of a collaboration with acclaimed Danish designer, Nadia Olive Schnack, on one of her residential projects in Copenhagen, the DRAPE CIRCLE 28 is a larger, more monumental version of the DRAPE CIRCLE 18 Chandelier, a SkLO classic. The 28 adds another larger ring to the 18 platforms, and 10 additional lit spheres (number in the product name indicates the number of lit spheres).
Like the DRAPE CIRCLE 18, the new DRAPE CIRCLE 28 Chandelier offers many custom possibilities by its very nature. By working directly with the SkLO Design team, designers can explore the different possibilities of lengths and proportion which are possible – by adjusting the relationships between the locations of the rings and lit spheres, this chandelier can have many different personalities.
Combine that with the already numerous options already part of the DRAPE collection – 5 glass colors, 2 metal hardware finishes, and 4 available fabric electrical cord colors – and the endless possibilities are clear.
The DRAPE CIRCLE 28 Chandelier references the classic cascading chandelier language and form, yet it is an entirely modern reinterpretation of the typology. Each lit sphere measures approximately 11cm / 4.5 inches in diameter, and features a signature SkLO detail of being broken hot from the glassblowing pipe and fire polished, leaving a small rippling mouth in the glass. Individually handblown, no two spheres are exactly alike. The individual spheres are hung on fabric-wrapped electrical cords.
“The DRAPE collection is an investigation into the potential behind the idea of a simple cord-suspended pendant which displays the quality and variation of SkLO handblown glass,” says SkLO Design Partner, Karen Gilbert, “In the DRAPE CIRCLE 28 Chandelier, I love how we achieve an imposing chandelier with the subtle addition of four simple brass rings. The rings allow for a relationship to form, with the pendants supporting the rings and the rings giving structure to the chandelier, itself. It is a remarkably complex design, yet it looks effortless, and that makes me like it even more.”
