This stunning “Vortexx” chandelier was designed by Zaha Hadid and Patrick Schumacher and produced in partnership with Zumtobel Staff. Nudity and seamlessness are conceptual terms that best describe the appearance of this 1.8 metre wide and 0.8 metre high light. The pattern follows a double helix connecting its beginning to its end and therefore forming an endless ribbon of light.
Two transparent acrylic light spirals are inscribed in the chandelier’s otherwise opaque surface. A recessed LED light strip provides animated and programmable light sensations. Different lighting atmospheres may be created by the user in order to match the specific space in which the chandelier is installed.
This new interior design language is fuelled by advanced digital design possibilities and manufacturiung methods such as CNC-milling and 3D printing. The user is invited to creatively explore its interactive qualities and respond to its unfamiliar aesthetics.
Material: Fibreglass, acrylic, high pressue LEDS.
