The Pour is a dramatic interpretation of rainfall designed as a
chandelier by Design Haus Liberty (DH Liberty).
Designers Lisa Hinderdael and Dara Huang created The Pour raindrop
chandelier as a light sculpture for a client in Tribeca, New York City. The
existing site features exposed industrial columns on either end of a dropped beam
within the living room. The design brief was to produce a light sculpture that
would hang off of the existing beam and create an architectural relationship
with the space.
Using the rain as inspiration, DH Liberty began the design process by
exploring the concept of rain and how each water droplet magnified light in
DH Liberty worked with UK-based glass-blowers and metal engineers to
create the crystal teardrops. Each drop was hand blown by artisans and
intricately engineered, with the brass screw cap housing the light and the
hand-blown crystal to reflect the light. To replicate the nature of raindrops,
no two drops were blown identical.
The name ‘The Pour’ represents the distinctive shape formed by the
chandelier, similar to the exaggerated and dramatic motion of water pouring out
of a carafe.
