Sciolari chandelier `Chevron` brass & chrome

ROOMSCAPE
Sciolari chandelier `Chevron` 9 lights brass & chrome, 1970`s ca, Italian.

This chandelier has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina. It is newly rewired & earthed with 2 metres of grey silk cable. It is fully working, PAT tested by an electrician and ready to install. Light bulbs are included in this price. This chandelier can work with a dimmer. It is possible to use this light in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity.

Vintage Gaetano Sciolari chandeliers are known for the quality of the materials and originality of design. In this case the traditional branch shaped chandelier is given a Modern twist with reflective materials and sharp geometric forms. This design is influenced by the Brutalist & Futuristic styles of the 1970`s. The combination of materials & sculptural presence make this chandelier a unique addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Minimal, Industrial, or Contemporary.

This 1970`s Sciolari chandelier has a high quality chrome & brass frame arranged in a zigzag or chevron shape. The sculptural Modernist design consists of a center hexagonal column in polished chrome from which there are 3 arms which further divide into two external arms.

The main central column continues at the top towards the tubular polished chrome rod & ceiling cup.

Surrounding the central column there are 9 lateral columns also of hexagonal form. Each is polished chrome with a light at the top. The bottom of each column is finished with a chrome hexagonal cover.

These columns radiate from the central column as well as joined together with horizontal bands; these are highly polished brass & chrome.

Each lamp holder carries one standard (E14) light bulb up to 40 Watts. At present photographed & fitted with Pygmy clear light bulbs of 15 Watts which are included in the price. Other (E14) bulb shapes could be used for a different look.

At the top, the chrome rod unscrews from the frame for easy transport. This rod can also be shortened or replaced with a chain if needed.

The ceiling cup is polished chrome. It is fully removable and sits on a metal ring that slides along the rod and can be secured. Inside the chrome ceiling cup there is the original Sciolari maker`s paper label.

This vintage chandelier is in very good condition and sound construction. The brass & chrome surfaces are in very good condition with a warm antique patina and superficial marks in line with age.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care in packing. For safe transport the frame would be wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap, foam & soft card. The rod would be unscrewed & packed separately if necessary. Both frame & rod would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing peanuts ideal for safe posting.

Additional dimensions:

The total Height of the chandelier with the rod is 90 cm.

The dimensions of the frame only without the rod is: Height: 48 cm, Width: 51 cm, Depth: 51 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.
