Structure

The largest chandelier is elliptical with a major diameter of 36 feet. The 11 ft tall glass plates are oriented in 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 light of blue and red. The glass also plays an active role in the overall structural system, stabilizing the rings against rotation.
