It’s the case of the Raindrop chandelier known as “The Pour”, a modern light sculpture meant to illuminate and beautify its chosen location in Tribeca, New York City. Lisa Hinderdael and Dara Huang of Design Haus Liberty worked on the design that was supposed to create a unique vibe in a living room featuring exposed industrial columns on either end of a dropped beam. According to the design brief, the light sculpture was supposed to “create an architectural relationship with the space” while beautifully hanging off the exposed beam.

To replicate the nature of raindrops, no two drops are blown identical. The name “The Pour” derives from the distinctive shape that the chandelier forms: an exaggeration of the dramatic motion of water pouring out of a carafe. Designed by forming a grid mimicking how puddles ripple outward in concentric circles, each teardrop is hung to brass pipes of varying lengths. Placed strategically on the grid, the teardrops lock into the mirrored base that fits seamlessly between the two existing columns. The mirrored base reflects the teardrops endlessly into the sky above and when lit. The chandelier echoes rain frozen in time with ephemeral puddles overlaid on the floor below.”
