Monochrome Paper Chandelier Ceiling, Madrid

Posted 1 year ago by

Chandeliers can be an expensive addition to any room, unless you’re willing to get a little creative like artist Cristina Parreno. Her latest installation included paper tubes and lighting to create a unique, three-dimensional ceiling to wow guests of Arco Madrid’s art fair this year (2013).

Parreño set up this entire room with hundreds upon hundreds of paper tubes in a monochromatic color scheme to showcase the undulating waves, texture and light shadows cast onto the other tubes as well as the walls and floor. The tubes were quite large in diameter– more of a cardboard style tube than your average 8.5×11 rolled up piece of paper for a more unified, structural statement.
