Imagine an enchanted forest, that ressembles Snow White history while she is running from the castle to the interior of the dense glade. That’s the effect of the incredible Forms of Nature chandelier, created by Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz. When you turn it on, a white bunch of tangled roots and branches casts 360 degree shadows transforming your entire room look into Snow White’s forest. The shadows may a look a little creepy but, at the same time, they produce a fanciful effect.
The designers mirrored the forest-like sculpture around its horizontal and central axis to form a full circle around the light source. The mirrorings are thrown onto the wall and create almost Rorschach-like patterns whose shapes feed on ones imagination. Besides the shape of the chandelier, light intensity also affects the overall atmosphere—when the light is dimmed the chandelier creates an image of a weak fire burning in the forest. It is left to a person’s imagination to read the over-sized shadows as a forest gently lit by the flickering camp fire, or a terrifying underworld filled with monsters lurking behind the roots and bushes.
