Badass Chandelier

The Winnie Lui chandelier has to be one of the most unusual lighting pieces in the world. Each chandelier is an explosion of ‘bits and pieces’ and bric-a-brac collected by Lui.

From small shoes and chains to kitchen utensils and children’s toys – Lui has scoured junk shops and flea markets to find these everyday objects and turn them into something more akin to an art installation than a light fitting.

There are only 200 of the chandeliers in existence, 100 in white and 100 in black. The white gives a sense of magical fantasy, while the black can seem almost foreboding, but entirely captivating. Each light continuously offers up an exciting new discovery.
