Forms in Nature a 3D Printed Chandelier

Forms in Nature

A year and a half ago, we told you about Forms in Nature, a stunning light sculpture by Hilden & Diaz (Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz) that casts shadows of trees throughout a room. The 3D printed piece takes eight hours of assembly by hand. Created in Copenhagen, the beautiful chandelier took the world by storm. The first 100 editions quickly sold out, and a new 100 editions is currently under production. The new chandeliers will differ slightly but the final results will be very similar. The dimensions will be: 61L x 51W x 48H and the light fixture has been increased to a 90W bulb with dimmer.

The inspirations behind this project are German painter Casper David Friedrich’s romantic depiction of a man in the wild and German naturalist Ernst Haeckel’s plant and animal drawings. As Pio stated, “We wanted to recreate the feeling of being surrounded by mysterious nature, filling the room with these shadows of unknown nature, and being dominated by it.”
