Spatial Illumination with Ceiling Lamps and Chandeliers
Ceiling lamps have been in use since time immemorial. In the feudal periods, the rich had illuminated their rooms with the candle chandeliers.
The earliest candle chandeliers, used by the affluent in medieval times were of the portable variety. They could actually be moved to different rooms. Attractive structures were more prevalent in forts and households of ministry, traders and dignity brands, multifaceted forms of chandeliers, created on ring or crown designs, from the 15th period. Because of its high price, the chandelier developed a sign of amenity and prestige.
In the homes of the developing merchant class, ornamental cast ormolu forms with extended, bent arms and various candles found more popularity by the early 18th century. Neoclassical motifs, predominantly in gilded and carved wood and cast metals found popularity in the chandelier designs. These impressions also found a place in the aesthetics of ancient Rome and Greece incorporating classical proportions, clean lines and mythological creatures.
With the newer developments in the art of glassmaking, the scattering properties of lead crystals gained admiration and with the production of lead crystals going down, crystal chandeliers became prevalent. The art of chandelier making advanced in the 18th century as the Venetian and Bohemians took on the work and displayed their mastery in the art. Bohemian style gained keen acceptance across Europe and the biggest attraction was the exceptional chance of obtaining remarkable light refraction owing to the bevel and facets of crystal prisms.
The Italian art on light sources developed innovative designs and types and set factories in Murano. The glass made in Murano was however not suitable for faceting. However, the artistic intricate arabesques of leaves in chandelier design found great popularity. Fruits, flowers and leaves that were later on enriched by coloured glass and the special glass created at Murano found great acceptance. Famed for its exceptional lightness, the soda glass was so unique that it was different from all other types of glasses being manufactured all over the world. It required an implausible amount of skill and time to accurately twist shape and twist the chandelier.
The new type of chandelier with its characteristic beautification of glazed polychrome flowers was famously branded as “Ciocca” meaning bouquet of flowers. The most opulent of them comprised of a metal frame enclosed with small fragments in blown glass, coloured or transparent. They were decorated with fruits, flowers and leaves. The simpler model had arms were made with a unique piece of glass. The shapes were inspired by the architectural concept. The space inside was left empty as decorations were spread around the central support. In addition, with the length of the arms, they were distanced from the centre. These chandeliers manufactured at Murano gained great popularity in rooms and theatres of important palaces.
