Gorgeous Light Shower Chandelier by Bruce Munro

While Bruce Munro is well-known for his large-scale light installations, like the one currently at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, he’s been creating customized fibre-optic artwork for people’s homes for the last 15 years. One of his most iconic pieces is called Light Shower, which he came up with back in 2008 when he was invited to propose a lighting design for a contemporary highland lodge at the head of Loch Ossian in Scotland.

As he tell us, “I found myself sitting on a step halfway up the main stairs of the lodge absorbing a magnificent, uninterrupted view of the loch and group of snow-capped mountains beyond. It was raining in squalls against the plate-glass window, which distorted the view with rivulets of water streaming down the panoramic pane. The words ‘light’ and ‘shower’ registered in my mind and I had my idea.

“The original installation now hangs motionless as if suspended in time, overlooking but not interrupting the view of Loch Ossian. By day it catches glimpses of the sunshine, shedding prismatic flecks of light onto the stairs, by night it morphs into what it is: a shower of light.”

Munro has since made several variations of this chandelier and each one is designed to suit its specific location. He not only bears in mind the given architecture, he also references the surrounding environment and how light and reflections appear in the space.
