Within 4 Walls
QUIN.MGX by MGX by Materialise

QUIN.MGX Chandelier by BATHSHEBA GROSSMAN for MGX by Materialise

Part of the Within4Walls Collection since 2006

Quin depicts the last and most mystical of the five Platonic solids, the twelve-sided dodecahedron. In his first four shapes Plato saw the elements that make up the material world, but in this fifth he saw the nature and wholeness of the entire universe, the spiritual quintessence. This mesmerizing light-sculpture is an embodiment of that unity: the Quintrino.

Quin must be the most extraordinary and heavenly light we have ever seen. 
Its structure follows many swooping paths, leading from triangles to pentagons and back again. The geometric facets of the original solid dodecahedron are unloosened from each other and are free to rotate in space, opening out their boundaries into curves which fly past each other. This enables the turning surfaces to override each other likes waves on water while keeping the sculpture open into space in all directions. It's a symmetry which is rarely seen in any man-made or natural object.
We never tire of following the smooth flowing waves of Quin's mathematically astonishing and perfect design and still find it hard to wrap our minds around the fact that it has no joins whatsoever. It's bound to go down in history!
Quin's spectacular chandelier compositions are available in 3, 5, 9, 16 and 25 light units. The configuration can be in spirals or random cascades, entirely to your specification, and the final drop length of each shade can be fine-tuned during installation. Prices are for small shade chandeliers. However, large and small shades can certainly be mixed and matched for a playful and balanced light spectacle, please contact us for a price quote.
