lightjunction product launch #1: Spiral fibre optic chandelier from Sharon Marston

Sharon Marston Spiral fibre optic chandelier

lightjunction, our new fine lighting event, will be collocated with designjunction at the Sorting Office on New Oxford Street during London Design Week, 18-22 September 2013

Sharon Marston will be showing her wonderful new design, Spiral, on her stand at lightjunction.

As will be seen from the other five designs that she will be showing, the beautiful ornaments that she places through the curtains of side-emitting fibre optic filaments tend to be randomly (or at least asymmetrically), placed.

In Spiral, both the ornaments (blown glass leaves in tones of grey) and the filaments themselves are, well, organized in a spiral. We know the spiral shape is popular down the centre of a staircase -- and not just spiral stairs ...

...and are also welcomed anywhere where a sense of movement -- up or down -- is desired.

Of course, what you see is just a starting point. Sharon is an artist who will work with you to create something site-specific -- different sizes, or (for example) the glass leaves in an icy green/blue, if you prefer.

You will be able to discuss a specific project with her on her stand, or chat about what can be done generally with fibre optic filaments. This is the point of lightjunction: creating the opportunity for light makers and specifiers to talk to each other, surrounded by examples of the maker's work.
