Halo was presented at the Light+Building trade fair in Frankfurt this year. The new product of the Manooi collection design by János Héder gets his name from the optical phenomenon that one can sometimes observe in the sky, forming a circle encompassing the Sun or occasionally the Moon. It forms as the sunlight is refracted in millions of randomly oriented hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere.

In the beginning, when he was creating Manooi’s 2005 debut collection, the concept that János Héder had wanted to capture with his first lighting product was that of two galaxies embracing each other. After making and rejecting dozens of designs, he found his perfect shape. He named it ‘Artica’. The Artica chandelier has since become an iconic symbol of the Manooi brand, its distinctive ellipse recognized around the world.

This majestic crystal chandelier was inspired by oriental patterns, suitable for palace or luxurious hotel reception; this one of a kind chandelier was presented for the first time at the Euroluce 2015 in Milano.
