PRESS RELEASE: ARCFORM LAUNCHES HANDCRAFTED, STATEMENT-MAKING CHANDELIER
ARCFORM, the purveyors of British hand-crafted lighting that fuses the decorative and the functional, has launched a 25-pendant, statement chandelier, the Arc 25 Chandelier.
The Arc 25 chandelier comprises 25 individually hand slip rolled pendant lights that hang on tendrils of golden twisted braid from an oval ceiling rose. Each pendant contrasts a matt exterior in black or white with a shimmering, brushed soft satin brass or copper interior. En masse, the effect is mesmeric as the pendants coalesce into a flock-like formation, guiding shadows and light when illuminated or switched off.
Each individual pendant begins life as a rectangular sheet of metal that is rolled into its expressive, sculptural shape using ARCFORM’s trademark process of slip rolling. Slip rolling is a widely established method of metalworking and is traditionally used to create cylindrical shapes. ARCFORM co-Founder, Steve Hughes, has adapted this process to produce the company’s signature pendant shape, which possesses a quality of fluidity in its asymmetry.
