The largest chandelier is elliptical, with a major diameter of 36 feet. The 11-foot-tall glass plates are oriented at angles to each other, fanning outward towards the bottom.
The RSTAB model accurately followed the assembly of the physical parts, including the tiny details of the connectors. This allowed reliable prediction of the flexible deformations and the dynamic behavior.
The decorative glass is illuminated at night with intense, colorful blue and red lights. The glass also plays an active role in the overall structural system, stabilizing the rings against rotation.
