Modern Icons: The Caboche Chandelier
Release time:2012.12.10     Hits:
 
ouzz readers have literally been Buzzing about the Caboche Chandelier. Several times in the past few weeks, people have posted pictures of this glam light fixture and said "what is this chandelier?" Let me just tell you, it's been a relief to actually know the answer right off the bat!

So let me tell you a little bit more about this gorgeous pendant (by the way, it comes in several sizes and in a floor lamp version). It was designed by Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto for Foscarini in 2005. There is a great video on Foscarini's YouTube page about how the design came to be. In a nutshell, the inspiration came from a 1930's plastic bracelet that would multiply the light and reflect it from small spheres many times. From here, a flower-shaped (they also compared it to a sea urchin) skeleton was created, and the spheres simply snap into this frame like "Christmas tree balls."

The light emits a glow toward the ceiling, down to the floor and all around its circumference. It has the look of the oversized version of a diamond ring I'd love to put on my finger. It adds a glittering bit of bling bling to your space, but its simple ring shape means it works well in spare contemporary spaces as well as glamorous Hollywood Regency rooms. Below are images of The Caboche Chandelier serving as the icing on the cake in a wide variety of room styles.

The light looks perfect with a round table below. Its abstracted sea urchin shape means it works well with a lovely shell collection.

The clear Caboche appears differently throughout the day and night - against large glass windows you almost feel like you can see through it during the day. At night, it will glow and be much more visible.

In this contemporary space, the Caboche has a relationship to the windows, bringing light and reflection to the middle of the room.
