Paper Mobile.

This chandelier won't be at home just anywhere. Zettel'z 5 Chandelier from Ingo Maurer is certainly a twist on the traditional and because of that I think it is kind of fun. This grand chandelier substitutes the Bohemian crystal drops with scribbled paper notes from some incurable romantic's desk. The light shines through the paper mobile. In this work Maurer plays with traditional approaches to chandelier manufacture, using precious and semi-precious materials. The chandelier is Stainless steel with heat-resistant satin-frosted glass and Japanese paper. The chandelier has thirty-one printed and forty-nine blank paper sheets and comes with Halogen Par 30 bulbs.
