Each of the Muses patronized a different area. Urania cared for a sky full of sparkling
stars, so when creating the Muse collection we thought that a chandelier consisting
of multiple lamps would be a good reflection of her character.
The shade of each Urania was made of natural Spanish alabaster – a material with
an uncanny ability to transmit beams of light. The resulting glow envelops the room
in an exceptionally soft and delicate way, creating an unusual, sensual and peaceful
aura. This noble look is finished by elements made of solid brass, which, shining in
the sun, resembles royal gold. Over time, it will be covered with a charming patina,
drawing attention to the lazy passing of time.
Antique inspirations make this quadruple chandelier an excellent choice for both
classic and modern interiors looking around for original solutions. The combination of
golden brass and marble-like alabaster immediately catches the eye, but instead of
turning admirers to stone – it fills them with warmth, a sense of calm and comfort
wrapped in a hint of nostalgia.
Did you know that…
…alabaster is a compact, translucent, white or slightly coloured mineral that is a fine-grained variety of gypsum? Lampshades made from a single block of stone vary both in colour, which can take on pinkish, slightly beige and often completely white tones, and in texture – some shapes are crossed by dark veins, others remain in a uniform light tone. Each illuminated inside intrigues with a different drawing. The colour of the bulb can accentuate their pure white or give them a very warm honey glow.
Due to the natural properties of alabaster, small more heavily calcified clusters of less transparent grains sometimes appear inside the walls of the lampshade; these are more visible when the lamp is lit, but they are not a defect of the lampshade, merely a natural consequence of the construction of the material from which they are made.
