About Drape Circle 18 Chandelier
Glass shaped by hand
The glass spheres of the Drape Circle 18 Chandelier are formed by hand, allowing them to be slightly imperfect to express their handmade origins. The “dipped” glass options feature an irregular, open mouth, created by double-dipping the piece into the molten glass crucible, followed by breaking the piece from the pipe and fire-polishing the opening – a purposeful expression of craft and the act of glassblowing. The “textured” glass diffusers have no opening. Their surface is frosted and features a subtle pattern of lines etched into the glass for a moody and classic look.
The SkLO take on the classic tiered chandelier brings chandelier typology into a modern, minimal look. The ability of this simple chandelier to take on infinite different compositions by changing the locations and relationships between the different rings and the rings and their pendants is what makes this chandelier so impressive. Using multiple smaller elements to achieve a larger whole is a hallmark of SkLO design. It works just as well within classic and historic interiors as well as it does within modern ones.
The possibilities of simplicity
The Drape collection is an investigation into the potential behind the idea of a simple cord-suspended glass pendant that displays the quality and variation of SkLO handblown glass. It begins, necessarily, with the basic Drape Pendant itself. But from there, minimal additions are made – opportunities to enhance the structure, scale, and design of the diverse series comprising the Drape collection, including the Drape Circle, Drape Arm, Drape Skirt, and many more.
