Luxury interior furniture and accessory manufacturer Boca do Lobo have released two new luxurious chandelier designs to extend the company’s Limited Edition collection. These exquisite pieces would stand centre stage in any place within the home, and none more so than in the kitchen – a minimalist contemporary kitchen would be bought to life by one of these opulent creations suspended over a central island.
The Supernova Chandelier was, as its name suggests, inspired by the cataclysmic explosion of a massive star – this occurrence, when a star reaches the end of its life and explodes, can briefly outshine entire galaxies and radiate more energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime. The spider-like spray of brass lines extending from the Supernova Chandelier aesthetically reflects this amazing natural occurrence, while the mass amount of light bulbs fitted onto the piece mildly represents the huge illumination a supernova causes.
In contrast, the L’Chandelier promotes a dreamy and elegant aesthetic. This particular piece was influence by Paris’ Champs-Élysées avenue, which is known as ‘la plus belle avenue du monde’ (the world’s most beautiful avenue). The handcrafted polished brass Chandelier employed the antique technique (Repoussé) used widely with gold and silver for fine detailed work. The blend of traditionally elegant shapes, decadent materials and randomised placement of light bulbs allows the design to walk the line between contemporary and traditional – meaning it will work well in any kitchen scheme from traditional glamour to modern industrial spaces.
All of Boca do Lobo’s beautiful contemporary lighting collections are handmade in Portugal. A team of talented artisans with years of experience apply traditional manufacturing techniques and the latest technological methods to create truly timeless pieces.Boca do Lobo | bocadolobo.com
