This is a great sculptural chandelier with twenty-four lights, twelve up and twelve down for tremendous light. Made from brushed aluminum with black acrylic trimming. Designed by the top mid-century chandelier designer Gaetano Sciolari in the late 1960s for one of the top lighting manufacturers Lightolier. A classic architectural design that offers both upward and downward facing light, creating an enormous focal presence. A great piece of vintage lighting that is in excellent condition.
