Designer Thomas Feichtner has reinterpreted the chandelier for Lobmeyr as a minimal black tube with a single LED spotlighting a single crystal. I love the modern take on this. The original is billed as an "entry level chandelier." Possibly this is a commentary on opulence in general or a reaction the current economic condition, or maybe it's just a really nice light fixture.
It would be interesting to see a more industrial version of this using salvaged tubing (or recycled aluminum) and vintage crystals. What a great way to repurpose a dated chandelier!
