Ligo takes it’s inspiration from a brief in which a feature chandelier needed to light a room below it, without ignoring the space in the atrium it would hang in. This led to the concept of a modular system, so that the chandelier could be modified to suspend in a multitude of surroundings.
It is perpetually changeable, not only in size but also in it’s composition and arrangement. This allows the user to adapt the chandelier to suit their environment. Unlike awkward off-the-shelf parts, it has been assiduously engineered to eliminate the unnecessary and identify the essential. Its simplicity makes for an effortless assembly and reflects that of it’s name – Ligo – the latin for link, where a connection or relationship is formed between two things or situations.
The triad of gold plated, modular branches make up the fundamental framework of the chandelier. Tapered at one end, they attach via a hidden screw fixing to form any number of arrangements, suitable to their environment. Brass discs are then screwed to the ends of the stems that are to receive one of the hand blown, opal glass globes. The globes are fitted to the gold discs using a magnetic fastening, one of the many features designed to simplify the assembly process.
