HIDDEN TREASURES | Pierre Paulin | Chandelier Cylinder, 1971
Pierre Paulin designed this ceiling lamp for Verre Lumière in 1971, at the same time as his Palais Élysée commission. It is extremely rare. We presented it publicly only one time at Design Miami/ Basel 2016 in an exhibition about Verre Lumière and Pierre Paulin. At that time, it was not for sale. Twice, we made it available for offers; but ultimately, we were not ready to let it go from our collection. We considered saving this work for a future Verre Lumière exhibition in the gallery, but have now decided to make it available for this series instead—indeed a hidden treasure.
