Falling Leaf Chandeliers

'Falling Leaf' is our first 3D printed lighting design, produced as a bespoke item available in a wide variety of formats. Each composition is created from a palate of 10 interchangeable leaf forms, each produced from a laser sintered polymer.

The 'Falling Leaf' chandelier uses the very latest in RGB down lighting and can be dimmed, scrolled or paused using our Smart Phone App. These lights are fixed within a highly polished acrylic top plate, shown here in black, which allows a full mirrored image when viewed from below.

We keep a close eye on new technology and, although 3D printing is still in its infancy, the detail and resolution that can be achieved is remarkable. The process of using 3D CAD files to create lighting often produces geometric, mathematical shapes, forms that take advantage of the singular process of laser printing.

We have been researching how to produce a leaf chandelier that retained the delicacy and realism of a real leaf and we first started experimenting with thin porcelain. 3D laser sintering offered a way to do this, this white polymer possesses a similar translucency and allows for great detail.

We have generated five models in three sizes so that our compositions remain organic and bespoke; true to nature. This is our first kinetic light sculpture; the leaves are in constant, gentle motion - in a light wind their motion increases creating a mesmeric pattern of light and shadow , cast from the light source above.

This hallway chandelier contains just 54 leaves and has been commissioned for a private residence in central England. This was our first long 'Falling Leaf' chandelier and drops just over 4 metres - it is controlled via RF from an App and features just 15 watts of RGB lighting.

We were recently commissioned to produce a 4 metre long 'Falling Leaf' installation for the atrium and staircase of a beautiful contemporary 3 floor dwelling in South West London, built by Castellum, a high-end residential main contractor and developer.

Shown here is Sam, one of our main installers, slowly unfurling the leaves into position.

The whole installation has previously been composed in the studio and tested under various wind conditions.
