Contemporary Indian artist has Vibhor Sogani constantly moves across the thin dividing line between a sculptor and a lighting designer. He has created enigmatically beautiful steel art installations one minute and moved on to creating amazing luxury lighting solutions the next. While his famous artwork is the Sprouts Art Installation in Delhi, he has also created some iconic lighting designs that are commercially available. Orion is one such luxury chandelier design that has caught the world’s eye.
The Orion crystal chandelier is inspired from the incredible interstellar formations we see in the night sky. The beautiful lighting fixture is made using over 7,000 shimmering crystals, lit by a single light source. The bespoke chandelier plays with the themes of light and darkness, much like the night sky itself.
