~ Jason Krugman Studio// Treble Chandelier

I love this light 'Treble Chandelier' designed by Jason Krugman Studio & saw it a little while ago, but thought it was a great way to start the new year, full of light. An amazing use of LED's on a larger scale &  incorporating it into a more familiar form. Brilliant. Thanks to Jason for sharing your inspiration for the piece.


'Treble Chandelier'

A one-of-a-kind LED chandelier designed in collaboration with Sam Baron for Fabrica, United Colors of Benetton's Communications Research Center in Treviso, Italy. The chandelier was first exhibited in Fabrica's exhibition, Next Cabane in conjunction with Salone del Mobile 2011.

The piece is part of Krugman's Organic Electric series. Comprised of more than 3000 hand-soldered sharp-focus LEDs, the piece appears to change in brightness when viewed from different angles.


The inspiration for 'Treble' comes through our re-interpretation of a popular and centuries old paradigm, the baroque chandelier, using a new design technique. Our studio's LED assembly technique creates a physical support that is also an exposed electrical network. This allows the resulting pieces to be extremely minimal and lightweight, while also being very complex.

It also heavily influences the resulting forms, creating three dimensional curved surfaces that are pushed and pulled from rectilinear nets of LEDs. 


We are currently creating an outdoor system to create similar geometries on a larger scale, and recently finished our second LED cable installation, a piece titled 'Modal Field' that responds to its building's inhabitants with slow waves of color.
