‘These discs work like a spring mechanism and I have fixed its outward force in different shapes by bonding the fabric on specific points to the spring steel ring’, Henny van Nistelrooy presented this beautiful chandelier at the Arnhem Fashion Biennale*.
The London based Dutch designer made it of reflecting discs that conventionally are used in photography. Inspired by the biennale’s theme SHAPE, Henny approached this by exploring the characteristics of these visually appealing collapsible discs to create three-dimensional forms.
