    Putting the power into light


    When the Austrian Emperor sponsored the Electrical Exhibition of 1883 Thomas A. Edison’ s General Electric company partnered with Lobmeyr to create the first decorative chandeliers designed for the new electrical light bulb. The first prototype was followed three lines for distinctive clients: The Emperor himself, the new Lord Mayor’s office and the famous Hotel Sacher.

    The world‘s first electrical chandeliers

    The Most striking detail of an early electrical chandelier are the hanging bulbs. As a technical necessity, the bulbs had to “hang” from the power lines as the screw sockets were developed some time after the actual bulbs.
    With our chandeliers, this technical novelty nicely blends with the elaborate craft of the late 19th century style.

    The artisan checking a part against the drawing

    The design of the Sacher series draws from the playfulness of earlier chandeliers from the Neo-renaissance that in turn draws from various epochs of antiquity.

    The artisans love to make pieces from this series as the parts are very challenging to make and the detailed decorations make use of a plethora of different manufacturing techniques.

    In the end, each piece is a marvel of the craft.
