Pair of Kinkeldey Chandeliers

In stock
Seventies design is known for its playful embellishment and radical experimentation of form. This pair of chandeliers beautifully exemplifies such ethos with a deliberately coarser silhouette than its traditional counterpart.

The Kinkeldey lighting company won the 1969 lighting award from the International Forum Design Hannover for its modernist twist on the classical antique style crystal chandelier. This type was similar in style to the one featured here with square crystal shades but on a chrome frame. 

In the 1970`s Kinkeldey designs became more ornate with 24 karat gold plated frames, as seen here, and complex faceted crystal shades. 
The refractions cast by a crystal chandelier can greatly depend on the choice of lighting within - too much can make the chandelier so bright that it`s almost blinding, while too little light will not bring out the best of the crystals. Kinkeldey chandeliers are always made up of many lights with small screw light bulbs (E14). This allows many bulbs of low brightness to really maximise the sparkle.
