Shikhara Hanging Pendant
Arjun Rathi Design
Winner in Hanging Lights
The formation of the light is inspired from the "Shikhara", typical to Indian and Buddhist Temple Architecture. The Shikhara forms are representative of the five elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Ether and always form the top of these temples.
The light is designed taking inspiration from the Shikhara form, by representing the five elements; the form mirrors the opposite elements Fire & Water and Wind & Earth respectively in hand blown glass and the fifth element either is represented by a Conical Pyramid.
The light constitutes a combination of blown glass and brass manufactured with artisans in India; where the glass gives transparency to the vertical form.
The Shikhara Pendent Light has been designed in 4 editions to accommodate it in all types of spaces, where each varies in its height i.e. 9 feet, 6 feet, 4 feet , 3 feet and can be finished in choices of metal and glass finishes.
