BOUNCE!: Super-Ball Chandelier
Chief Sphaeralogist, Henry J. Simonds, was very pleased to collaborate with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh's staff designer, Lisa Carvajal, on a one of a kind chandelier. The 3-tiered piece was installed in the gallery space during BOUNCE! and will be permanently installed in the nursery area of the Museum. Here are some design renderings and the finished product for your enjoyment.
Commissions of new chandeliers will be considered.
