Inspiration: The gorgeous chandeliers at Sepia. We swooned a bit at the dramatic loveliness of the scale of this lighting and the photo-like effect of seeing the ornate chandeliers through the surrounding modern drum shade. The new restaurant, located in a former print factory, was designed by Gary Lee Partners. The chandeliers that the designers chose look like oversized versions of a Moooi lighting fixutre designed by Droog Design and Jurgen Bay in 1999.
Below the jump: The Hi - by Moooi and the Lo - a (slightly, ha!) less expensive chandelier/shade combo for only $298....
Hi: Award winning design - the Moooi LIght Shade Shade, from $1750 - 4310.
Lo: Definitely not the same, but related - the Mod Chandelier from Chiasso, $298. (Temporarily on backorder though 12.17.07)
