In the eighteenth century gas lights were used but the most significant evolution was created by the advent of the incandescent electric light bulb in the late 1880s.
For a long time the development of the chandelier was barely perceptible – until the commercialisation of the LED and the availability of practical digital control of kinetic movement. The effect is like a chain reaction. The nature of the so-called chandelier is now vastly broader, now encompassing a broad range of eclectic ceiling installed decorative features that emit light.
The Arberger Mill
The Arberger Mühle foundation village is located in the middle of the old town of Arbergens near Bremen in Germany. It was built in 1803 and is a Dutch mill set in impressive grounds. It is the oldest preserved mill in Germany, and has been a heritage listed building since 1973.
As part of the extensive renovation of the mill, we were asked by the owner whether we wanted to participate in the development and implementation of a lighting concept for the outer facade of the mill.
