Light+Building News: GIA & André Teoman Young Talent
Imagine a gentile bouquet of flowers gracing your ceiling, the Gia chandelier consists of hand sculpted polished brass calla lilies tied by a simple string. The idea was to bring the best gift a lover can give to one another to a piece of lightning that will last forever…. without watering.

This chandelier is all made of Polished brass, but it also can be made in antique brass or stainless steel. The standard piece takes 33 flowers which make it carry 33 E14 lamps, that can be turned on all at once or half of them. In this state it measures something around 80cm of diameter and it haves 200cm height, but all of this dimensions can be easily adjustable.

The project was tested in 3D modeling were we had the chance to test it, and see how many we could need to make it a opulent and strong piece of lightning. The whole concept of Gia comes from a flower bouquet, that like in real life we can make it lots of flowers or a simple rose, in the case of the lamp it can be made with one flower to look like a pendant light or full of them to be a magnifique chandelier.

The production of this chandelier is all handmade, and it was a big challenge for us to make it look just like we wanted. The artisans endured the perfectionism of the brand until the last detail and the result was great as it can be seen in all photos.

The first presentation of Gia was at the Masion et Objet 2014 January, and we were very pleased with the amazing feedback. And it was also a success, last week, as one of most coveted pieces in KOKET’s booth at AD Home Design Show, in New York.

What can I say about my design style… I don’t believe in the unity of the “true, the good and the beautiful” that aesthetically valuable and quality-conscious design will make us better people, as Bauhaus or the Werkbund once proclaimed…I create my own world with wicked things and to turn them into a symbolization of distinctive taste and humor. 
Hypnotic Chandelier
My collaboration with Koket started with great designs such as the Hypnotic Chandelier or the Chandra Chairs, and most recently like the Reptilia, Addicta or Gia.

Usually my designs for Koket are inspired in the last trends of the fashion world, this is one of the most ephemeral worlds where trends are set every six months, and for me its a great inspirational source.

André never had the chance to present his work in his name, been used to present the products at fairs like Maison et Objet or Isaloni in the brand name, this opportunity with the Light + Building 2014 will be a great chance to do that in his name.
