Davide Groppi ChainDelier has been awarded the German Design Award 2020 for ‘Excellent Product Design’. The German Design Award identifies and presents unique design trends: a competition that advances the design.
“A play on words between “chain” and “chandelier”. I was looking for a chandelier, something new, but classic. I wanted something simple, but with character. Like a pearl necklace, a chandelier that would allow us to solve the eternal problem of decentralisation.”
ChainDelier is a golden chain that bends under its weight, creating a perfect parabola and projecting light from its bottommost point. Gold is the ultimate metal ideal for conducting electricity. It is a metaphor of energy and desire.
Shining with golden rays like a modern version of a chandelier from Versailles, it is simple and linear. Davide Groppi ChainDelier can be whatever the user wants it to be, inserting more chains and lighting devices, with the lights facing up or down. The number of lighting combinations makes this lamp truly unique.
