About Drape Skirt 18 Chandelier
Glass shaped by hand
The glass spheres of the Drape Skirt 18 Chandelier are formed by hand, allowing them to be slightly less than perfectly round. Each glass shade also features a signature SkLO detail, a rippling fire polished mouth which is created by a second dip into the molten glass, and then the piece is broken from the glassblower’s pipe and fire-polished, making each one different.
Airy and minimal
Inspired by a pair of large custom chandeliers commissioned by SkLO for a project in the California Napa Valley, the Drape Skirt 18 Chandelier is a large chandelier that still feels airy. Decorative, yet very modern and minimal. Suspended and supported entirely on its fabric-wrapped electrical cords, the ability to customize its composition by changing the location of the skirts and their ring along the length of the fixture, as well as the lengths of the individual pendants make it a light with infinite variations.
The possibilities of simplicity
The Drape collection is an investigation into the potential behind the idea of a simple cord-suspended 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 that add structure, shape and volume, to allow for the many varied designs and collections-within-collections, which make up the Drape collection such as the Drape Circle, Drape Hook, Drape Skirt and many more.
