The Akio Chandelier was designed by Clarence Mallari, who was inspired by a quasar. The shape represents the star as it explodes and bursts from the middle toward the top and bottom. The uniformity of the twisted wire requires tremendous artisanship and many hours of concentration to achieve. The steel rods are covered in the same bronze gold finish as the cog that holds the light bulbs. This is a very tall, large-scale black chandelier with out-of-this-world personality.
