Contemporary Crystal 'Swoosh' Chandeliers

Our Swoosh design is based on the innate qualities and brilliance of pure Austrian crystal. With echoes of traditional crystal chandeliers, it's gentle deconstruction suggests a freedom more in keeping with a contemporary, less formal aesthetic.

This chandelier design utilizes 3-5 polished steel bands suspended from the top plate, Each band carries a semi spiral drop of Austrian crystal chains. The bands reduce the amount of crystal required to create a full composition, a form that eludes to the conical shape of more traditional crystal chandeliers.

We were asked to produce a 4 metre long chandelier using high quality Austrian crystal for a contemporary home in Glasgow.

In discussion with the client we developed the 'Swoosh' chandelier which created more of a sculptural light installation than a traditional crystal chandelier.

This has two lighting schemes; a large number of dimmable warm white LEDs with 20 degree beam in the top plate and RGB colour-change LEDs on a separate lighting schedule that cascades down throughout the length of the chandelier.

Over eight hundred metres of high quality Austrian crystals hang down from six polished stainless steel frames or swooshes.

We specify Austrian crystal for its' quality of cut and high refractive index; we usually use a 14mm octagonal crystal. By the time you have strung together a few metres of this crystal 'chain' the overall weight can start stressing the individual connection points . To avoid this scale limitation we evolved the 'Swoosh' chandelier, utilising the crystal in smaller areas but allowing a larger structure.

In 2015 we were asked to create a stunning central 'Swoosh' chandelier that complemented a unique contemporary interior inside a rather special house in Sheffield. Built in the 1930s but revamped and ungraded by the present owners over the last few years. The chandelier has a round powder coated top plate 1600 mm in diameter and hangs exactly 4 metres, to the foot of the 16 ton glass staircase.

Our last installation in 2014 - our clients created this impressive contemporary dwelling and allowed us to push the boundaries when we came to design this more sculptural version of the 'swoosh' chandelier.

Shown left with four mirror polished stainless steel swooshes hanging from a 1350mm square mirror polished top plate. Comes with 9 dimmable daylight LEDs, each with a 20 degree secondary lens system to focus the light.

This too was quite a large 'Swoosh' produced for a client in North London. It compromises of 1400mm polished stainless steel top plate, 1400mm in diameter with 690m of quality crystal.

Again it has a secondary RGB lighting system which were not able to take pictures of at the time of installation.

The client planned the hallway and ceiling detail with great care, using new mouldings and lighting to help centralise the chandelier within the atrium.

Connection to the house structure was achieved via suspending our chandelier off four steel ropes just 3mm thick.
