Description

Metropolitan Opera Ceiling Fixture

The Metropolitan Chandelier was designed by Hans Harald Rath for the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

These tiny fixtures adorn the landings in the left and right staircases between first, second and third floors. Despite their diminutive size they feature all elements that their larger counterparts in the foyer display. In a slightly contrasting fashion the large hand-cut crystals that are only accents with the large Metropolitan chandeliers are here a striking detail. Thus they outbalance the sputnik element and enhancing the material presence of this cute fixture.

  • Material: Brass, Swarovski and hand-cut crystal;

History

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.
