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.
