Milan – Let them have chandeliers? Perhaps designer Yves Béhar and his Fuseproject would do just that. Béhar, founder of the One Laptop per Child project, has created a chandelier that is accessible to all.
At the Swarovski Crystal Palace in Milan, Béhar unveiled a revolutionary concept. To bring down costs and reduce environmental impact, his ‘Amplify’ chandelier is made of just one LED light, one Swarovski crystal and a faceted paper shade. Yet, despite its pared-back ingredients and low energy requirements, the effect is still glowing.
The chandelier is expected to retail for around $100, so it seems the masses will be able to afford to shine. LS:N Global thinks it’s a great idea.
