Maria SC story
With Pani Jurek’s innovative chandeliers, creative interior design knows no bounds. The Maria SC chandelier is made of removable test tubes, each fitted into a plywood ring, that can hold vibrant liquids, plants, sand, beads, or other unique and colourful items—or stand empty for a stunning crystal effect.
This surprising material and geometric shape makes this lamp both classic and innovative. The 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 scientist, Maria Sklodowska-Curie, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The tubes are detachable and the lamp provides the opportunity for visual experiment by creating a variety of configurations and arrangements.
The Maria SC chandelier is available in two sizes.
- Maria SC single with 60 removable test tubes and one wooden ring.
- Maria SC double with 96 (60+36) removable test tubes and two wooden rings. This size is also available in the color black.
