The Fleurish ChandelierMichele Varian Lighting
The Fleurish Chandelier is a modern, organic mobile-style lighting fixture designed by Michele Varian and built in our NYC studio. It is solid brass construction with glass and crystal accents, mimicking flora from Japanese imagery. The fixture is kinetic and moves like a mobile or a plant blowing in the wind.
Inspired by organic occurrences in flora – honeysuckles, stamen, water lilies, thorns, knobby branches, and the grotesquely pretty twistiness of an olive tree trunk—the elements of the three-tier chandelier engage every plane of vision.
The 7.5 foot solid brass armature individually connects to its fellow tiers with another solid brass rod through swivel hooks, allowing for rotation of each arm, separately. Arm lengths are customizable, though connective rod placement and ornamentation is set to ensure consistency of balance.
Each individual ornament is hand-constructed and hangs like a ripe fruit, or bursts off of the light like a plume of seeds disseminating into the air. The designs include glass crystal 'droplets', cocoon-like brass orbs, solid brass 'thorns', tiered miniature sculptures, and curled brass 'stamens'. Each functions as both counterweight and contributor to its artful, refractive presentation.
Designed and assembled at our 27 Howard Street workshop and studio, the Fleurish Chandelier will be available with a lead-time of 10 weeks.
