If you are not familiar with the work of Stuart Haygarth, you’re missing out. An artist and designer who turns found objects into spectacular lighting, furniture, and art installations, his pieces are whimsical, technological and imaginative.

Angelica is a modern chandelier designed by Nucleo, a design group based in Italy. The design concept – a chandelier in eighteenth century style revisited in modern key – was to eliminate any super-structures, thus making light the only protagonist.
Angelica outlines its presence in space by evoking the past with soft lines that subtly recall the style of the eighteenth century. The chandelier lights up with an intensely soft light, creating an effect that is poetically suggestive and sophisticated.

For Philipp Plein, the skull is deemed to be a symbol for art, beauty and the celebration of life. The motif plays a central role in the design of the 31 year old designer and is a highlight of the new Murano crystal collection.

Besides the impressive chandeliers the collection includes also drinking glasses and vases, all made in Italy. Every item is unique and intricately crafted by the hands of Muranos best glassblowers.
