The Citylight Chandelier is a trip to the light fantastic, made up of a lot of cast bronze lights running on meters of bronze arms. Inspired by midnight strolls amongst the flyovers of Shanghai, Molenschot aims to capture the hallucinogenic effect of driving on the motorway at night by replacing any illicit substances with a distinctly legal anamorphic effect.

The anamorphic effect comes from the fact that although all the lights are based on the same shape, eighty-one were deliberately deformed to mirror the visual effect you see when looking at the lights on the motorway as you pass them by.
This piece, being a resplendent gold, is a significant departure from Molenschot’s usual style, a pointed evocation of the ‘House of Gold’ in which it sits.

About the artist
Frederik Molenschot

Frederik Molenschot was born in 1981, is graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven, currently works in Amsterdam, and is part of the Dutch Design Movement. His degree was earned with studies in man and public space and he focused on connecting people and their environments. 

The founder of Studio Molen, Molenschot is a blur of constant energy, forever creating and developing new ideas and inspiring people. Molenschot crafts his work by hand and displays incredible diversity. He has a deep interest in the artificial and natural elements of our surroundings. His aim is to transport the viewer’s senses to a new level. 

Molenschot is best known for his cast bronze lighting structures such as his body of works City light which he hand-shaped into detailed formations to channel and direct light.  His work is inspired by city lights and the night sky which visualize a vision of a future city. 

He says, “If you’re an architect, your world is a building, a graphic designer works on a newspaper or a wall, while a landscape architect plays with nature itself. I try and draw all these worlds together and see what happens when they meet.”
