nebula...

Euroluce has installed the stunning Nebula chandelier in their Brisbane Showroom.

Designed by Joris Laarman for Flos, Nebula is a blown glass replica of a cluster of old lampshades the designer found when browsing in a local flea market.

The design is certainly unusual. Strange shapes and odd dimension. Yet somehow quite delightful and vaguely familiar.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

I don't know why, but it kind of bothers me that it looks unbalanced being asymmetrical. Then again I have an unhealthy obsession with symmetry.

Hi Dale
I get what you mean - it is a symmetry thing. We had a client say the exact same thing (that and the fact that it is around $AUD28,000).
Here is a link to quite an interesting article in the New York Times that discusses the design and its' relevance to the broader concept of design. Quite interesting.
