Swarm Chandelier

November 6, 2008 at 4:10 pm (Focus II)

The swarm chandelier is an amazing piece of organic abstract art designed by Zaha Hadid. It composes of 16,000 suspended black crystals hung on individual wires. It is located at the front entrance of V & A museum.

This is not a real chandelier but a false way of creating internal light source instead it is an example of art is that is “less about its functionality than its expressions of its conceptual or theoretical exploration used”
In my own opinion, Zaha Hadid has created this chandelier to illustrate her thoughts and use of organic shapes to designs her buildings that is “not necessary its functionality but its conceptual form”
