Claire De Lune Chandelier (Lighting) by Claire Requa
2011 - 2012, Bronze A' Lighting Design Award Winner
Inspiration
From a desire to purchase a chandelier in a modern style and modern material.
Creativity
Decorative, lighting, sold flat-pack, packaged in a reusable carrier bag. This is an elegant lamp, sold flat-pack, with both consumer and seller in mind. A view to reducing carbon footprint while shipping. It is a modern take on an old iconic product. It is romantic, reminiscent of something from fairy tales, something from Eastern religion/philosophy all in one product.
Design Challenges
After looking in varius design and lighting stores for a chandelier, and not finding one that I liked, I set about to design one myself. After 6 months of not sleeping through the night, tweaking the design, the mechanics, researching the materials, and the processes of how it might be produced, I arrived at a prototype that I was finally satisfied with and took it to a trade show in Denmark. It was important to me that the packaging be as eco-friendly as possible. That the disposable of any waste material be eco-responsible.
Production Technology
Laser cut acrylic
