Approached by the interior designers of the Avenue St James refurbishment I worked up several designs for a wine glass chandelier and a glass holder system based on the specs provided to me by the client. The chandelier was designed as a dramatic focal point hanging over a beautiful decanting station in the centre of the restaurant.
The wine glasses were to be hung in a high density all around a frame based on an traditional wine bottle holder but upturned. The frame is a series of rings held together with straps that vanish into the ceiling and run down the inside of the frame, made from steel it was then powder coated in a white whilst all the screws and nuts are in brass. Two brass rings with LED lights illuminate the wine glasses from within.
The engineering of the project was a challenge that I really enjoyed and its functionality in design is what ultimately appeals to me about this piece.
