Salone del Mobile 2017 – Piet Hein Eek remakes Veronese chandeliers


Dutch designer, Piet Hein Eek had a task that turned out to be a dreamy job to him: give a second life to Veronese found glass, and make chandeliers from there. An incredible work to see at Salone del Mobile 2017.

The project began when Ruben Jochimek — Veronese’s creative director — came across a treasure trove of spare parts of glass hand blown by skilled italian artisans of Murano in the basement of their parisian showroom. composed of over one-thousand pieces, the set had been building up since 1931.

Known for his upcycling projects, Piet Hein Eek was the perfect “Man for the task”. The pieces — stored on dusty shelves for nearly a century — included crafted cups, drops, rings and flowers. With the glass objects found by Veronese, the designer came up with ‘past and future’, a collection of chandeliers with 40cm glass tubes, equipped with LED lighting into which the spare parts can be slotted.

The result is a lighting collection that features an eclectic feast of styles and colors. each model is 40cm high and 25/30cm in diameter, creating a suspension composed of three modules. The tubes can also be assembled to create longer chandeliers.
