The Metropolitan Chandelier - 40" Diameter

The Metropolitan Chandelier, made of hand-cut Swarovski crystals, is inspired by the “Sputnik” chandeliers designed for the Metropolitan Opera House by Hans Harald Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr, Vienna. The original chandeliers, given to the Met in 1966 by the Austrian government, are among the best-loved and most recognizable features of the opera house. The inspiration for the design came from Wallace K. Harrison, the architect of the Metropolitan Opera House, who presented Lobmeyr with pictures of distant galaxies.

  • Dimensions: 40" Diameter, 22" High
  • Finish: Silver
  • Each chandelier is pre-wired to the specifications of your location.

You can now bring the elegance of these chandeliers into your own home with new, custom-made Metropolitan Chandeliers. Various sizes and materials are available.

Sputniks

The Metropolitan Opera’s starburst chandeliers have been a beloved fixture of the opera house at Lincoln Center since it opened in 1966.  Dubbed “sputniks” after the Russian spacecraft, they reflect light brilliantly through clusters of Swarovski crystals.
