Dynamic Chandelier Rises and Sets to Mimic Natural Sunlight

Lighting in a home may create different types of effects depending on its placement or its brightness, but one fixture rarely has the flexibility of this chandelier. Called “The Rhythm of Light,” the piece is equal parts art and functional home object. According to http://susannedegraef.nl/index.php?module=project&project[action]=showItem&project[itemID]=25&, the artist behind the project, the chandelier is meant to mimic the natural rising and setting of our natural light source, the sun.

The layers of the lamp move up or down depending on the user’s mood, altering the light just as the sun’s light changes throughout the day. Editing the amount of light diffusion allows the chandelier to provide a dynamic room interior that static, unchanging light can never accomplish.
