Maria S.C. chandelier is made from chemistry test tubes, set in two plywood bands. This surprising material and geometric shape makes this lamp both classic and innovative. The double glass cylinder recalls Art Deco forms in a unique contemporary way. The use of ready-made objects gives an appearance with a Duchamp idea. The lamp is inspired by the Polish scientific woman, Maria Sklodowska-Curie, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of polonium and radium. The tubes are detachable and the lamp provides the opportunity for visual experiment by creating a variety of configurations and arrangements.


Diameter: 47cmx47cm (18.5 x 18,5 inches) , high: variable (80 cm (31.5 inches) form celings, but you can order different lengh)

The package contains:
- ring with the hanging strings,
- ceramic bulb socket,
- ceramic ceiling rose
- 96 test tubes (60+36)

Bulb is not included

Tubes are very durable. They have never broken in transport but you will receive some additional test tubes, just in case.

The lamp is very easy to install. You need it just to hang and put the tubes into the ring.

To arrange the rainbow, we have used food colouring powder (3 basic colors: red, blue, yellow) and mixed it in different proportions. Food powders are easy to remove, they do not color of glass permanently.
