Polish designer Pani Jurek took inspiration from the world of science when she designed the Maria S.C. chandelier lamp from a set of test tubes. The piece is named and designed as a nod to innovator, scientist, educator and academic Maria Sklodowska-Curie, who was the first person to be twice awarded the Nobel Prize, first in 1903 and then again in 1911.

As a woman and as a scientist she broke the mold by becoming the first female professor at the University of Paris and went on to found the Curie Institutes in Paris and Warsaw, which are still important in the world of medical research today.
