GENIUS 2 is an elegant chandelier crafted from over 30 raw mountain crystals with organic shapes. The composition of the chandelier was meticulously designed to position the largest crystals at the bottom, while the smaller, lighter ones appear to float like dandelion seeds in the air. The light emanating from within these crystals creates an incomparable ambiance.

GENIUS 2 is a mesmerizing tale of light merging with an unexpected material. The mountain crystal used in the chandelier is a precious stone. It’s incredibly malleable and picturesque. It seamlessly integrates with light, absorbing it and then emanating it in the form of a very subtle glow. It’s a beautiful, natural product that forms a unique symbiosis with light.
Designer Maria Rypuła saw the potential in this raw stone and decided to create a product that enriches interiors using its essence. ‘When I first looked at the raw mass of this stone, I was drawn to its natural form. Unprocessed, irregular, wild. Each one different. I thought it was an interesting product. But the moment I shone the light of my smartphone’s torch on it, I was speechless. It was like a culinary combination of two ingredients. Both good separately, but only when combined do we get an exceptionally surprising taste. The same happened with the combination of light and crystal. The way light penetrates the mountain crystal is hypnotizing. I knew we were facing an incredible challenge in creating a modern chandelier.’
GENIUS 2 is a timeless chandelier, consisting of over thirty individual mountain crystals of various sizes. Each stone is suspended on a thin yarn-covered wire. Some stones are perfectly smooth and resemble pure ice, while others are matte and mysterious. Their internal structure affects how light is emitted. The suspended stones shine in a way reminiscent of a starry sky—some brighter, others fainter; some larger, others smaller. This composition turns the chandelier into a sculpture designed to evoke emotions and enrich spaces.
The chandelier has two separate light sources. The ambient light emanates from within the crystals, impacting emotions, while small, high-powered LED bulbs located in the ceiling provide illumination. Both light sources can be used simultaneously or individually. There’s also an option to use dimmable LED bulbs in the ceiling, allowing for easy control of light intensity inside the space.
‘When designing a product, I pay attention to how it will affect the end-user, what emotions it will evoke. Product functionality is crucial, but I aim for the product to intrigue and be, as it is in the interior, a sculpture,’ emphasizes designer Jacek Rypuła.
