Epoque is a light sculpture designed to study chiaroscuro and volumes. The result is a modern expression of these renaissance-era techniques in a stunning chandelier. Composed of curved, organic lines, Epoque’s frame is made of flexible and durable brass metal, suspended by nickel metal chains. Two bands of metal, a central elongated section and an external band of wide arcs, allows the light to envelop a room in reflections of soft light. Epoque has attracted attention from those in the design community with discerning tastes. Epoque is available in nickel, black nickel and gold finish. Design Stefano Papi & Saviz Yaghmai.
