A typical ceiling lamp of the Jugendstil period with the signature glass tubes. The two tiers of tubes refract the light of the central light bulb charmingly creating a lovely play of light along the tubes. The metal skirting can be made in many metal finishes and is suitable for installation directly to the ceiling. Various options for installation as a pendant as well as addition of more light bulbs into the body are possible.

Accustomed to Oswald Haerdtl’s long and slender shapes this cute little fixture strikes the eye as something special. With this fixture designed for the Hotel Ambassador he brings his floral and playful style into small rooms.
The brass frame is fashioned in the same branched way as other pieces of his design but confined to a little ceiling basket. The surface is finely polished. As crystal Haerdtl used colourful leaf-shaped pieces in alternation with clear items.
Such he creates a lofty and light fixture which is perfectly fit for bed rooms or dressing rooms with low ceilings. Alternatively this fixture can be suspended from chains thus creating a pendent lamp.
The phase of reconstruction after the war saw a great spur in architecture for public places as these represented the recovery from the atrocities and destruction. This ceiling fixture emerged from this period as one of the most important items. Fixtures of this kind were very popular then as they enabled the architect to bring a glint of glamour into public spaces easily.
A ring of brass with a variety of finishes is decorated with chains of crystal. The chains connect to a bottom plate in the centre of the chandelier which is then also decorated with a large rosette.
This simple design template leaves room for various customizations making this general concept feasible for almost any environment.

The Metropolitan Chandelier was designed by Hans Harald Rath for the Metropolitan Opera in New York. We were awarded the contract to deliver the chandeliers by the Republic of Austria as a donation in gratitude for the United States aid in the European Recovery Programme.
These tiny fixtures adorn the landings in the left and right staircases between first, second and third floors. Despite their diminutive size they feature all elements that their larger counterparts in the foyer display. In a slightly contrasting fashion the large hand-cut crystals that are only accents with the large Metropolitan chandeliers are here a striking detail. Thus they outbalance the sputnik element and enhancing the material presence of this cute fixture.

|Options||Metal parts in different finishes; Sputnik element in different color or metal finish|
The line of fixtures was designed by the architect Page Donhauser for his own private residence.
The namesake chandelier makes use of the hugely successful Sputnik Elements of the Metropolitan line combining it with shades made of precious hand-cut rectangular crystals. The structure is made of brass with a nickel finish. The cylindrical element can easily be removed for cleaning.
This new design picks up the cylindrical shade to create a tine but still exquisite ceiling fixture. By omitting the sputnik elements this fixture is reduced to the pure shade and emanates a clean and modest air, perfectly fitting any modern environment.

After the sudden death of their father the fifth generation of owners embarked on a new journey. The Swarovski Crystals, made prominent internationally by us before were one important influence in this period. Another was the expertise for hand-cutting large crystals as centre pieces of chandeliers and not just finery.
This is a very unusual interpretation of the Fruit theme. Here the renowned chandelier design by Josef Hoffmann was used to create a ceiling fixture. It is made from brass with a gold finish. The shades in the frames are made from opaque glass.
This fixture is then decorated with the usual colourful glass fruits to take away from the otherwise stern and geometric composure and give it a more playful character.
Through its flat shape this item perfectly adorns low rooms or can be suspended to decorate hallways or staircases.
With the advent of electric light wo collaborated with Thomas A. Edison and developed the first representative lighting using the new light. This enabled us to create chandeliers with the lights hidden in the body. The first items of this type were showcased at the Simplon Fair in Milano in 1906 which were milestones of a new style.
The idea for this fixture stems from a project where we picked up the shape of a conference table and brought this to the ceiling.
The fixture was made in the best way where the lights are completely hidden behind crystals in a dense curtain. Also the bottom section we made in a continuous cover of crystals. The type of construction enables the creation of fixtures in almost any shape desirable.
Also the application is variable as this design can be mounted directly to the ceiling, suspended with chains or rods or supported on a base as a floor or table lamp.

Following our credo we crave to create new lighting ideas. Some instantly soar the market while others never make it to the drawing board. Some then emerge after decades as lost treasures or secret heroes. Our vast archives as well as close contact to architects and designers are sources of inspirations as is living with light.

Following the huge success of Marco Dessí’s Basket Chandelier we decided to come up with a smaller version of this lamp for hallways or staircases. It premiered in September 2011 in Vienna’s Museum of Applied Arts.
Inspired by the shape of traditional lanterns, Dessí was weaving a basket-like structure using hexagonally bent glass tubes in combination with silken cords. The ceiling fixture is a versatile extension of the original Basket-series enabling application in low-ceiling rooms.
The silken ropes leave room to create bespoke variants to match the ambience of the perspective room.
|Lights||15 × G4-Halogen; Max. Watt.: 300 W|
|Options||Metal parts in different finishes; various colors of silk ropes|
