The Chinese Lanterns
Chandelier for Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta.
Realization by Lasvit.
The opal and amber Chinese Lanterns reference the simple shape of classic paper lanterns with an elegant vertical cut that provides intriguing glass reflections. Their warm glow, along with a black metal frame, are enhanced by LED retro light-bulbs. Thus a purely traditional shape acquired a contemporary feel, while keeping its natural warmth.
The Chinese Lanterns sculpture adorns one of the private dining areas at the Li Feng, a fine Cantonese restaurant located on the second floor of the Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta five-star luxury hotel.
