DAVID GILL GALLERIES PRESENT CANNON CHANDELIER BY FREDRIKSON STALLARDOctober 28, 2014 12:12 pm
Launched in Art Basel earlier this year the Cannon Chandelier has made its UK debut during London Design Festival and has remained in situ at David Gill Galleries for the duration of PAD and Frieze.
The Cannon chandelier is a work of great graphical clarity, with a spatial simplicity that is both architectural and sculptural. The idea of buying a chandelier “by the metre” seems at first more the language of mass production and conformity, but through site specific arrangements of the individual elements, hung vertically, horizontally and everything in between, the piece is always relevant and unique to it’s own environment, constructed from simple elemental strokes of light.
These are building blocks, which combine the vision of Fredrikson Stallard with the imagination of the collector and the uniqueness of each environment.
Passages of light, movement and direction, like magnified fluorescent tubes, push through space with a 21st Century luxury presence. Fredrikson Stallard has again deconstructed the classic and created an iconic new chandelier language.
