Starburst chandelier from Vienna for the Metropolitan Opera
The family myth tells of a book on astronomy Harrison presented to Hans Harald Rath as inspiration for his design. It showed the first scientific photographs of distant galaxies and nebulae.
The narrative also has a model made of potatoes and toothpicks and a lucky accendent of Tad Lesky, a member of the architects Harrison & Abramovitz.
The Met chandeliers can be made in a wide variety of finishs.
SIzes range from 60 cm diameter to monumental sizes 600 cm such as the one at Met Opera in NY.
The concept of the chandelier also allows for stretched versions with one elongated axis to go over longer tables.
The idea behind the Met line is that they scale to any size without any visible impact on the general look. Especially the chandeliers of 100 cm diameter and larger basically all look the same. Actually the visual difference between various sizes is often less obvious than the difference of looking at one chandelier from different sides.
