DOUBLE SPIRALLING TREE
Spiralling Tree and its related design, the Double Spiralling Tree. These two chandeliers are the latest additions to the willowlamp collection, which includes pieces such as the Spiral Nebula and Enchanted Faraway Tree. The Spiralling Tree and Double Spiralling Tree are two versions of the same initial concept – a winding tree branch with leaf canopies that cascade around its circumference. The body or “branch” consists of a steel frame, while the “canopies” are made out of elegant drops of chain. The weight of the chain causes the branch to collapse downwards and inwards forming the elegant spiral shape for which the chandeliers are named.
These two designs were both inspired by the Enchanted Faraway Tree chandelier, which has counterbalancing branches at multiple levels. However, the two new designs take their original concept a step further. The entire body is one continuous piece instead of the fragmented layers of the Enchanted Faraway Tree.
What makes the Double Spiralling Tree unique and fascinating is that its Figure of Eight design forms a three-dimensional mobius strip once the weight of the branch and chain collapses the spiral downward. The shape and form of this three-dimensional mobius strip is further enhanced by LED edge lighting in the structural core of the branches. This illuminated line continuously mutates as one moves around the chandelier and adds to its visually striking effect.
