GENIUS 9 is a phenomenal chandelier constructed from nearly four hundred noble mountain crystals with irregular shapes. The raw crystals form an elliptical structure, giving the chandelier a modern yet dignified appearance. The stones used in the chandelier emit light in a manner reminiscent of a starry night sky, creating a spectacular, suspended-in-air installation.
GENIUS 9 is a chandelier born from inspiration drawn from natural beauty and remarkable forms.
Designer Maria Rypuła recognized the potential of raw mountain crystals and decided to utilize them in creating lighting that enriches interiors. “When I first laid eyes on these raw crystals, I was fascinated by their natural form – raw, irregular, wild, each stone different. But when I illuminated them with the light from my smartphone’s flashlight, I was enchanted. It was like combining two perfect ingredients in the kitchen. Yet, only their collaborative work reveals the true, surprising taste. The same happened with the fusion of light and crystal. The way light penetrates through the mountain crystals is hypnotizing. I knew that an extraordinary challenge lay ahead in creating a modern chandelier.”
GENIUS 9 comprises nearly four hundred mountain crystals. Subtle light emanates from within each crystal, unveiling the mystery of the noble yet raw stone. The multitude of stones in its elliptical structure becomes the centerpiece of any interior. GENIUS 9 draws inspiration from traditional chandeliers but presents them in a modern context. It is a sculptural chandelier designed for impressive, minimalist spaces where it takes on a dominant role. Its purpose is to evoke emotions and enrich the space.
“When designing a product, I focus not only on its functionality but also on how it will evoke emotions in the user. The product should be not only practical but also intriguing, a true sculpture within the space.” emphasizes designer Jacek Rypuła.
The chandelier has two separate light sources. The ambient light, which influences emotions and creates an atmosphere within the interior, emanates from within the crystals. The second light source comprises small LED bulbs located in the ceiling, providing exceptional luminosity. Both light sources can be used simultaneously or individually. An available option includes using dimmable LED bulbs in the ceiling, allowing for easy control of light intensity within the interior.
The sculptural nature of the chandelier, natural materials, intriguing form, and local production embody the character of the Gie El brand.
