The concentrated light emanates downwards, gracefully flowing through the concentric arcs, creating an illuminated focal point. The Hadron embraces a nostalgic nod to the central role that chandeliers once held as the centrepiece, while maintaining a contemporary aesthetic through its minimalist form and thoughtful selection of materials.
Drawing inspiration from the elegant principles of the Art Nouveau movement, as well as organic and geometric forms, the Hadron exhibits fluent contours that evoke the shape of a traditional lantern. Its curvature highlights the seamless fusion of opaque acrylic with a choice of polished nickel or brushed brass finish.
Challenging the conventional and utilitarian use of LED lighting, the objective was to design a light fixture that could imbue this technology with an unparalleled level of refinement and craftsmanship.

An exciting feature of the design is that it is not static; rotating arms allow the Hadron to be flattened or have a voluminous presence. It forms a dynamic aerial sculpture that lends itself to being hung as a collective as well as a singular piece.
The Hadron has a striking, celestial presence when both illuminated and turned off, a distinguished centrepiece for any modern or traditional interior.
