Israeli designer Aviad Petel’s custom organic chandelier, designed for Hotel Boutique, 96 Rothschild in Tel Aviv. The dynamic 250 x 80cm space connects the main lobby of the various building floors, spanning 12 meters in height. The concept was aimed to flow naturally, as its influences are drawn from the climbing Ipomea Tricolor plant, which has a gentle climbing stem from which colorful flowers emerge.
By developing a new technique to attach wood veneer pieces through sewing, diagonal strips fuse the components with solid construction to support its balance. The mobile starts in the ceiling and ends just before the ground level, connected in two end points: the ceiling and floor. The foundation rolls up as a total of nine ‘Grappa Flower lamps’ emerge to provide light towards each of the stairs. Each is made of rolled metal covered by cloth with random folding, resulting in an interesting interplay between the staircase and interior surroundings.
