Polished lacquered brass structure: 1 central rod and 5 rings 64 light green crystal leaves: 8 large leaves (L: 7. 1) and 56 small leaves (L: 6. 7) Martyn Lawrence Bullard is a multi-award-winning interior designer renowned for his broad range of styles and eclectic yet sophisticated and inviting interiors. Martyn's extraordinary attention to detail and commitment to quality have won him international acclaim. His collaboration with the established Maison Daum for this chandelier was the refore inevitable. The chandelier came about from a desire to highlight the beauty of Daum crystal's intensely layered color and depth. I felt this was best shown when light floods through the crystal. From that knowledge I built up the idea of a beautiful chandelier where the crystal could be seen at its most magnificent. For the Eden chandelier my ideas came from the temptation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The very idea that Daum crystal is so tempting it becomes irresistiblehe most delicious of sculptures, a bright rosy red apple, is buried within the leaves glowing temptingly and becomes the surprise and completion of this creation.

Daum, the legendary glassmaker master, has kept alive for more than a century a love relationship with the greatest artists of its time, giving their work of art a second life of crystal and colours. From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendez-vous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.

Few brands have worked with as many artists: for nearly 140 years, more than 350 exceptional signatures have constituted a heritage beyond compare, a unique collection.

How to convey those works into crystal sculptures? This is where Daum's secret lies, shaper of the exception, highly knowledgeable workshop, laboratory of wonders, designer of incomparable objects. All of the Daum pieces are lovingly hand produced in France, using traditional lost wax sculpting technique.
