A silver winner of the LG OLED Design Competition, the Versailles Chandelier by Alexandre Boucher mixes history with the future. It uses flexible OLED technology to create a chandelier that visually stays true to its roots, mimicking the overall silhouette, but rather than using bulbs to illuminate the massive lighting fixture (and glass/crystals to disperse the light), the Versailles Chandelier lights up itself, thanks to the properties of OLEDs.
Fit to be seen in any palace ballroom, the Versailles chandelier has a luxury-meets-steampunk appeal. Paper-thin, and extremely energy efficient (courtesy the LEDs), the chandelier manages to look modern and vintage both at the same time. It may not be as intricate and ornate as its ancestors, but it definitely isn’t something your eyes could ignore!
