    Meanwhile in the Thirties…

    Carl Witzmann created this chandelier for the cabaret and movie theatre “Scala” in Vienna. It became an epitome of the romantic orientalism of his time. The overall shape is reminiscent of the namesake Chinese pavilions.
    Witzmann was a great inspiration for Karl Lagerfeld, who bought a Pagoda for his villa outside Paris in 2013.

    This almost simple but still playful design takes its splendour from the vast amount of cut beads. The geometrical form is complemented by the brushed nickel frame, which gives it an organic feel and contradicts the sparkle of its crystals.
    Besides its abundance, the use of different crystal types also implies a certain wittiness and gaiety.

    Fire-forging of the curled ends

    A subtle yet striking detail is the curling and twisted ends of the main frame parts. These are fire-forged from brass bars, a rare combination of material and technique.
    The generous use of time for elements like these is what makes this piece so stunning. And so also a not so trivial task for our artisans to have themselves challenged by a beautiful piece of work.
