named after the palace of king louis xiv, grand trianon is a large, lightweight chandelier made of post-consumer coated tyvek. when lit up, the grand trianon emits a soft checkerboard glow from behind its surface of folded slits. the impressive size and surface texture are a modern reference to the opulent decor found in france’s palace of versailles. “everything about the art and architecture of the versailles is made with the greatest intensity. that inspired me to start this collection of lamps.”
grand trianon and petit trianon features identical texture, pattern, and soft checkerboard glow but different sizes. made of tyvek, a post-consumer coated plastic material, the striking sizes of the grand trianon and petit trianon are quieted by the delicate nature of tyvek material.
grand trianon: 23”dia. x 28”h
petit trianon: 14”dia. x 22”h
