Koket is an exhilarating gloriously, fabulously over-the-top collection founded by the New York-based interior designer Janet Morais in 2010.The range of furniture (tables, cupboards, chairs, mirrors) includes nine lights -- so far.
The one we are focusing on in this post, the Hypnotic chandelier, is initially the least spectacular (really!). But it is a design that stays with you -- we are looking forward to seeing it again. It was also the Most Wanted item on their stand, where we were encouraged to "feel this piece's savage beauty...".
Here it is in full:
For once, the catalogue and press release text exceeds anything that I could write, so...
Named after Sophocles' legendary tale of a woman who defies the laws of man, this sleek and elegant chandelier will hypnotize its audience.
You will become mesmerized as the intricately fashioned chandelier coils and bends in golden spirals; weaving itself elaborately within the sharp polished lines of the hexagonal silhouette.
It is (very well) made from polished brass and grey glass, Ø80cm H53cm, and £2,352.
I long for the day when a client rings up to say that she is looking for a chandelier with savage beauty. When it happens, we'll know where to point her!
We will be watching the progress of this young brand with great interest.
