Design by Francisco Gomez Paz and Paolo Rizzatto, 2009.
Hope, a result of nature as inspiration, experimentation with new materials and processes, determination, wonder and technical innovation. Hope is incredibly light and easy to assemble, elegant and versatile in its contemporary interpretation of the crystal chandelier.
A series of thin polycarbonate Fresnel lenses multiply the light from the sources, creating a pleasant, glittery and festive atmosphere, sprinkled with thousands of tiny reflections. The use of the polycarbonate Fresnel lenses allows the Hope to be impressive in scale while still being light, easy to install and less fragile than glass.
