Lasvit Neverending Glory Chandelier Collection

Finding great chandeliers that are neither too old fashioned nor too tacky is actually not an easy task. Therefore I was more than thrilled when I discovered Lasvit‘s Neverending Glory Collection designed by Jan Plechac and Henry Wielgus. This collection of five crystal chandeliers interpret the shapes of the chandeliers of five of the world most renowned concert halls and theaters: La Scala in Milan, Palais Garnier in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, but also the Czech Republic’s Estates Theater in Prague. I’d love to see their elaborate outline set as a focal point in a minimalistic dark room.

From left to right: the Metropolitan, the Palais Garnier, the Scala, Prague Estate Theater and the Bolchoï.

My favorites are the Metropolitan Opera for it’s midcentury vibe and the Scala. What’s your take on chandeliers? Whenever I look at pinterest I usually don’t see chandeliers anymore. They are either antique crystal chandeliers seen as antiquities, or modern pendants. Do you think there is a place for modern chandeliers? Jan and Henry’s work certainly combines tradition and modernity.

  • I felt in love with those chandeliers when I saw them. So much artcraft in them and Opera house around the world are such a beautiful inspiration. I would love to see them in a real interior all together. I think there is definitely a place for modern chandeliers in modern houses (in a way the Ingo Maurer Zettel suspension is a paper version of it). We live in a house with very high ceilings and any suspension looks so ridiculously tiny in it I just forget it exists! I’m not a fan of ancient traditional chandeliers and I’d love to find a modern glass version of it … I’m sure there is a designer working on it right now 😉
