14 Billion years of light evolution in one chandelier - Daniel Libeskind's 'el chandelier

Polish-American architect, Daniel Libeskind designed this ‘el’ chandelier for Sawaya & Moroni in 2012. It simulates the evolution of light from the Big Bang to the present day, reflecting light through the use of around 2000 LEDs. Each light has its own micro-controller and the system is based on an algorithm developed by astrophysicist Noam Libeskind. The striking shapes of the chandelier are emphasized by the virtual movement of light.
What an amazing concept - condensing the evolution of 14 billion years of light into a 14-minute light show. Just imagine having this in your home!
We’d love to hear what you think of this piece!
