Luxury chandelier, made from thinly-cut pieces of exquisite red-veined translucent onyx. Ideal to be hung over a table, with versatile configurations.
This chandelier is truly spectacular, and uses onyx with dramatic red veining. While the red onyx gives a beautiful, sculptural look to the chandelier, it does reduce light output a little, so most of the light comes from the upper hole. This makes it ideal for ambient light or as a sculptural piece.
This unique version is made with patina brass.
Ivory onyx comes from Middle Eastern quarries and has a unique veining. This translucent stone is carefully worked in Italy, and was chosen because of its combination of interesting patterns, high translucency, and the way it makes the light output look warmer.

Other versions in the Sistema Solare collection


Our onyx supplier has worked in many high-end architectural projects, and these same materials have been used at the Armani hotel in Milan. When he was shown the chandelier designs, he rose to the challenge and adapted his tooling to make us perfect round discs. He worked hard to find exactly the right thickness that would keep the depth of the texture. It could not be too thick, otherwise it would lose transparency. And too thin, it would look like it was printed.
The result is stunning. The combination of carefully-worked translucent stone and brass works perfectly, and the use of the ingenious Orbitale structure allows the geometry of the chandelier to be played with, and it can be configured in several ways.
There is nothing else like this on the market.
The technical data are the same of the equivalent Sistema chandelier with the same number of shades.
The Sistema collection uses a clever rotating stem structure and features a shallow drum-shaped shade at the end of each arm.
The chandelier arms are designed with two lengths so that each can be staggered at different angles. They work well in any space and suit both regular and low-ceilinged rooms wonderfully.

The 8-shade version is ideal to be hung over a long rectangular table.
Please see the drawing to get an idea of sizes for the different chandeliers. On the upper side of each disc there is a smaller opening to provide ambient light.
Top-quality LEDs with over 80 CRI, meaning that the lighting does not alter the color of food and people.
The LEDs are on a 24V direct current feed, so there is no flickering. The arms can be rotated 180 degrees to configure various combinations. As well as two rows of evenly-spaced lights over a dining table, a regular 8-shade star or 4-shade star (see photos) are possible, as well as creative sculptural shapes. The arms can be rotated even when the chandelier is lit.
The shades can also be rotated on the arm axis to meet any lighting needs in a living room (paintings, bookshelves etc.).
This listing shows the smallest drop. A change of drop is complimentary.
