Inspired by the lightness of dandelions and the glamour of the 1920s, the Fiela Chandelier Lights by Haldane Martin have been designed to create angelic ambient lighting.
The lights are named after the title character in South African author Dalene Matthee’s well-known novel “Fiela’s Child”. The story is set in Oudtshoorn, the town where the Ostrich feathers that form the soft white diffusers are sourced.
The feathers are a renewable resource and naturally repel dust. They are attached to a central frame with crocodile clips in a formation inspired by the flower petal pattern found in Proteas, South Africa’s national flower.
The third light in the collection, the Fiela Feather Chandelier hangs by a stainless steel cable from a brushed stainless steel mounting disc. The cable system allows for multiple chandeliers to be hung beneath one another, making it an ideal lighting feature in double or triple volume spaces.
Each Fiela Feather Chandelier comes with three 15-watt warm white, large ball CFL globes. The large feather shade, inspired by the glowing orb of the sun or moon, is made from approximately 300 ostrich feathers.
Launched in 2006 as a limited edition. This range is no longer in production.
