“Forms in Nature” is a collection of unique chandeliers by Denmark-based design group Hilden Diaz. The pieces were inspired by nature drawings by Darwinist Ernst Haeckel.
Not only are these chandeliers striking in its appearance; they also casts incredible shadows on the surrounding walls. The sculptural design mimics a tree and its roots, twisted and intertwined in a way that looks sporadic. However, this design is actually mirrored around its horizontal axis — a trademark in many previous designs by this Danish duo. In “Forms in Nature”, the mirroring resembles the relationship between our world and the mystery of the underworld.
The intensity of the shadows is due to the design, where the strong light source emits directly in the center of piece, surrounded by the forest-like outer. Completely enveloped in the twisted branches, the light source allows the shadows to climb the walls and transform the room entirely. The mood and effect of the lighting changes as the light is dimmed, as the strong shadows fade into subtle silhouettes.
