Light installations can get pretty fancy at times and have also been known to double up as several other applications before. Here’s yet another astounding light installation that’s more than just the chandelier it’s intended to be. Called the Global Data Chandelier, this creation by Sosolimited, Hypersonic Engineering & Design, Plebian Design and Chris Parlato sports 425 hanging, low-res pendants that brighten and dim in synchronized patterns to display different data points! The chandelier displays information about GDP growth rate, renewable water resources and energy consumption and a hell lot more.
Created for the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ new headquarters in Washington D.C., the chandelier is probably the only one of its type designed to replicate the world map. That said, this is simply one of the most intelligently designed lighting installations we’ve come across before!
