Angelo Mangiarotti style chandelier, Murano glass chain link on a chrome frame, Contemporary Collection, Italian. This chandelier is available & displayed in our London Showroom. Also available to order, we can supply multiple chandeliers. In addition it is possible to order extra glass links to add to the design or for spares. The same design is also available with a gold plated gilt frame. Angelo Mangiarotti`s 1960`s chandelier of chain link Murano glass is the 20th Century Design Classic which inspired this piece created for Roomscape`s Contemporary Collection. Mangiarotti`s original model `Giogali` was innovative, winning the `Compasso d’oro` at the Triennal of Milan in 1969. This contemporary chandelier has many of the same quality & design features as Mangiarotti`s original design: clear textured Murano glass interlocking chain links and a chrome tiered frame. As Mangiarotti`s chandeliers are rare to come by, we sourced this extra-large size perfect for contemporary decorating. The tiered form with its cascading waterfall pattern is grand but still `light`. This look is ideal for a range of interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, French, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour or Contemporary. Arranged down the 3 tiers are 120 handmade Murano glass open chain links. Presently photographed with chain of a series of 4 pieces on each. The interlocking glass links allows to change the overall length & design for infinite possibilities. The top of the glass links hook onto the frame. In total there are 120 glass links that initially could be put in rows of 4 links on each tier: 64 hang on the top tier, 40 on the second tier & 16 on the bottom tier. The glass links could also be placed in an alternate pattern to create different shapes or heights & volume (as photographed). The texturized glass surface creates a sense of movement and beautifully reflects the light. Each glass shade is thick & strong, and has a long hook portion on the back to safely secure to the frame. The quality chrome frame has a polished finish. From a central column there are 3 concentric tiered circles, each of which is secured to the column by several horizontal supports. The top row of 6 pivotal lamp holders rotate in various directions to create different effects and angles with the lights. The middle tier has 3 lamp holders facing down, and at the bottom there is 1 down lighter. Carries 9 standard E14 small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each, and 1 standard E27 big screw light bulb up to 60 Watts at the bottom. At the top there is a decorative chrome ceiling cup and chrome chain. This chain could be lengthened or shortened as needed. Packing is offered free of charge. This chandelier travels well as all the components can be easily wrapped separately. Each glass link would be wrapped in card & bubble wrap. Small groups of glass shades would be boxed. These boxes would be placed in a larger box with the frame. The frame would be wrapped in bubble wrap and reinforced with card. These items would be supported inside with filler. Additonal Dimensions: The total Height of the frame with the glass links but no chain is: Height: 100 cm, Width: 56 cm , Depth: 56 cm. The frame alone (without the glass or chain): Height: 75 cm, Width: 50 cm, Depth: 50 cm.
