A Global Chandelier by Benoit Vieubled

Benoit Vieubled's eco-friendly chandelier is made using 15 world globes. Dubbed the “Monde à l’endroit, Monde à l’envers,” the largest fixture stands 2m high. The world globe chandelier brings a sense of whimsy and curiosity to lighting, offering an opportunity for learning and play facilitated by a chandelier.

The Globe Chandelier by Benoit Vieubled
We've seen a myriad of takes on sustainable lighting at 3rings. Another reclaimed fixture that is in total contrast to the Globe is the E-fan Chandelier by DeridderDesignstudio which takes recycled computer fans to create lighting and cooling in the same fixture. A more natural sustainable approach to lighting can be seen in the Chandelier Anuri by Bleu Nature which is a driftwood chandelier that has a similar whimsy to the Globe Chandelier minus the world traveler appeal.

Benoit Vieubled's collections work with light and materials that have an arts and craft's feel. There is a heavy emphasis on iron work, inspired by his grandparents, a boilermaker and an artist. Vieubled's work has an old world traditional nature with a sense of humor and curiosity that is a welcome light hearted twist on an old classic.

About the Designer: Benedict Vieubled lives and works in Orleans. He obtained a Higher National Diploma in painting at the Institute of Visual Art of Orleans. His workshop was created in 1997, where he has since created monumental chandeliers for companies such as Heritage Carousel du Louvre in Paris, and Chantilly CAT Gemini.
