The bioluminescence of deep sea organisms is a magical thing to behold. Czech designer Kateřina Smolíková captures this wonder of nature beautifully in her breathtaking glass chandelier design, lit by energy-efficient LEDs.

According to Design East, the chandelier is meant as an orientational light, for strategic soft lighting of dark places. One can imagine a whole series of these ephemeral chandeliers hanging down to create a dreamlike, oceanic atmosphere.
