This is a sculptural, extravagant and yet elegant modernist chandelier designed in the 1970s by the Italian lighting designer Gaetano Sciolari.
The chandelier is created in an angular geometric design.
The vertical chrome tubes support sockets above and cylindrical Lucite tube finals below.
Several rectangular chrome tubes with a soft mat finish connecting the high polished chrome tubes of 9 bulbs and several high polished cylinder.
Your choice of bulbs will create different looks. You can place every type of E14 bulbs on it: classic chrome tipped round bulbs, or tubular bulbs, or even LEDs ones will compliment the fixture nicely.
You can use a dimmer to produce a beautiful play of light like candlelight (see images for an example of this).
