Sistema Solare, Luxury Ivory Onyx and Brass 8 Rotating Orbitale Arms Chandelier

$10,187.77per item


Sistema Solare is the variation of the Sistema chandelier where the shade is made of a thin cut Ivory Onyx slab. Actually the whole project started for this incredible material. Ivory Onyx comes from middle east quarries and has an unique veining. I picked this because it's the translucent stone with the combination of best pattern, neutral to light output and high translucency. The supplier of thin onyx slabs furnishes high-end architectural projects, you can see his same material used at the Armani hotel in Milan. When I showed him the designs of the chandelier he had to enthusiastically adapt his tooling to make perfect round disc. He worked on the thickness to keep the dept of the texture. Too high will loose on transparency, too low it will look like a print. The result is just stunning. The combination of stone and natural brass works perfectly and the use of the orbitale construction allows to play with the geometry of the chandelier. There is nothing like this in the market. Technical data are the same of the equivalent Sistema chandelier. Sistema collection uses the successful rotating stem structure of the Orbitale collection and features an architectural low and large cylinder light source on each arm's end. I designed the chandelier arms with two lengths so that each can be staggered on different angle. They work well in any space and have the possibility to fit wonderfully regular and low ceiling rooms. The best feature is that it is ideal for a dining room, over a rectangular dining table. In order to decide the two lengths I placed the shades evenly spaced over a regular rectangular dining table footprint and designed the arms length accordingly. See last picture with the schematic. You can see how perfectly lays over a 200 x 100 (80" x 40") or 220 x 110 (88" x 44") dining table. The 3 arms version is for an oval table best, I used the two largest Saarinen tulip foot print. The result is a uniform illumination over a dining table. There is nothing like that in the market. There are beautiful chandeliers but always giving too much light in the center and low at the heads. Each shade has two led strip that can be lit separately. So you have a regular light and a stronger light depending on the use of the chandelier. Led is top quality with CRI above 90. This insures perfect natural color of food.... and people. See photo before the last where I placed some fruit and a color chart below the chandelier (a la Caravaggio). Led are on a 24V direct current feed, so no flickering. See video (ask for Video) Arms can rotate 180 degrees to reach any possible combination. Beside the dining table with two rows of lights evenly spaced, regular 8 arm star or 4 arm star (see photos) or just sculptural random. Chandelier can be rotated lit. Shades can rotate on the arm axis to fulfill any lighting need of a living room (paintings, bookshelves and so on). On the back a Lucite smaller opening for giving ambiance light. Chandelier keeps the successful brass finishes of the orbitale collection. Natural brass acid cleaned on the stem and cymbal finish on the spun pieces. I am listing with the measurements for dining table and with a minimal drop. Please see last image for all sizes. Drop will always be customized. Silvio Piattelli copyright and design. Technical part. See last photo for measurements. LED: Each disc has two 65 cm separate led strip using each 8 watts. CRI above 90 and 136 lumens/watt. Total light output inside the shade: 2160 Total chandelier 17280 Chandelier is fully dimmable. We need to review the system used. In alternative chandelier can be built with two separate circuits and two feeders, in order to have 50% light or full light and no dimmer. Two drivers in the canopy that keeps the same shape of the shades. 24 volts DC. Thus no flickering. See video. Shades are connected to the arms with a two movement joint. The up and down has a set screw with the purpose or setting perfect horizontal after receiving the chandelier. The axial rotation is 360° illuminating wall, library, painting etc. Shades are connected to the arms with a two movement joint.
