Mangiarotti chandelier Giogali Murano glass hooks

ROOMSCAPE
Angelo Mangiarotti style chandelier, Giogali, Murano glass chain link on a chrome frame, 1990`s ca, Italian.

This chandelier has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina. It is newly rewired & earthed with silver silk cable, PAT tested by an electrician, fully working and ready to install. Light bulbs included. This chandelier can be used with a dimmer. It is possible to use this chandelier in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity.

Angelo Mangiarotti`s 1960`s chandelier of chain link Murano glass is the 20th Century Design Classic which inspired this piece. Mangiarotti`s original model `Giogali` was innovative, winning the `Compasso d’oro` at the Triennal of Milan in 1969.

This vintage Italian chandelier, although dating probably from the late 20th Century/early 21st Century, has many of the same quality & design features as Mangiarotti`s original design: clear textured Murano glass interlocking chain links and a chrome tiered frame. The links where designed to be cleverly moved around creating different patterns & shapes.

This large size piece is perfect for contemporary decorating, either above a table, in a staircase, or as a focal point of any room. The tiered form with its cascading waterfall pattern is grand, but still `light` . This look is ideal for a range of interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, French, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Minimalist or Contemporary.

Arranged down the 3 tiers are 120 handmade Murano clear glass removable open chain links. Presently photographed with chains of a series of 4 glass pieces on each chain. The top of the glass links hook onto the frame.

The interlocking glass links allows to change the overall length & design for infinite possibilities.

In total there are 120 glass links that initially could be put in rows of 4 links on each tier: 64 hang on the top tier, 40 on the second tier & 16 on the bottom tier. The glass links could also be placed in an alternate pattern to create different shapes or heights & volume (as photographed). The texturised glass surface of the links creates a sense of movement and beautifully reflects the light. Each glass shade is thick & strong, and has a long hook portion on the back to safely secure to the frame.

The quality chrome frame has a polished finish. From a central column there are 3 concentric tiered circles, each of which is secured to the column by several horizontal supports.

The top row of six pivotal E 14 lamp holders rotate in various directions to create different effects and angles with the lights. The middle tier has three E 14 lamp holders facing down, and at the bottom there is one E 27 down lighter. In total the chandelier has 10 lights. All the lamp holders have decorative chrome lamp holder covers.

Carries 9 standard E 14 small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each, and 1 standard E 27 big screw light bulb up to 60 Watts at the bottom. At present fitted & photographed with Candle clear light bulbs which are included in the price.

At the top of the frame, there is a chrome ring screwed to the main structural rod inside the frame, and a chrome chain. The chain finishes at the top with a chrome ceiling cup, where inside, there is a hook to hang the chandelier to the ceiling.This chain could be lengthened or shortened as needed.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care with packing. This chandelier travels well as all the components can be easily wrapped separately. For safe transport the frame would be wrapped in bubble wrap and reinforced with card. Each glass link would be wrapped in card & bubble wrap. Small groups of glass shades would be boxed. These boxes would be placed in a larger box with the frame, together with loose fill packing peanuts ideal for safe posting.

Additional Dimensions:

The total Height of the frame with the glass links (as in the option photographed), but no chain is: Height: 100 cm, Width: 56 cm , Depth: 56 cm.

The frame alone (without the glass or the chain) is: Height: 75 cm, Width: 50 cm, Depth: 50 cm.

Each glass link is: Height: 13 cm, Width: 10 cm, Depth: 5 cm.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
