That was the idea behind the crystal
chandeliers that hang in the grand lobby of
New York's Metropolitan Opera House.
They were designed by Hans Harald Rath, a
Viennese chandelier maker. His first sketch didn't
please the Met's architect, who gave him a book about
the big-bang theory and told him, "Find some
inspiration in this book."  So he did.

and to Mandarin Orange Monday.]


  1. Wow, stunning chandeliers.

  2. What an amazing composition! I love the way it is divided with the curvy line and the contrasts of lines and textures - and of course, the orange colour! Thanks for sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday:)
