Part of a new wave of emerging Portuguese designers, lighting design firm DelightFULL creates mid-century contemporary lighting fixtures for the home. Unique and tailor-made for commanding attention in any room, the creations will certainly serve as an ice breaker at gatherings. The brand’s signature Heritage collection showcases a range of high quality and versatile pieces, of which the Botti chandelier stands out as a truly singular work of artistic craftsmanship.

Characterised by an expressive rhythmic composition of horn elements, the chandelier embodies the best of DelightFULL’s unique design philosophy, bringing together quirky features (in this case, an orchestra of trumpet bells) tinged with a vintage ambience. Perfect for those with a penchant for jazz-age influences, the chandelier reflects the alluring aesthetics of 40s, 50s and 60s culture whilst emanating a quiet power that strikes the viewer from every angle.

With no expense spared to ensure excellent quality and workmanship, the hand-crafted and made-to-order fixtures are created by a skilled team of artisans in Portugal. Crafted in brass and swathed in a luxurious gold mantle, the piece is available in three sizes and is also further customisable (for colour and pole height) to suit your design specifications.

Place it in your bedroom for a glamorous touch of soul, or let it dominate your living space. Whether in large areas, smaller abodes, restaurants or even hotels, Botti is sure to impress.

Interestingly, DelightFULL has also made a name for itself as one of the selected interior design firms to be featured in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey. This partnership has certainly catapulted its fame beyond the lights of Hollywood and into the homes and spaces of design aficionados everywhere. Having recently launched a furniture and home accessories collection as well, one can only expect nothing but the best quality pieces from the popular brand.
