Martyn Lawrence Bullard is a multiaward winning interior designer renowned for his broad range of styles and eclectic, yet sophisticated and inviting interiors. Martyn’s extraordinary attention to detail and commitment to quality have won him international acclaim. His collaboration with Daum for an interior design chandelier was therefore self-evident.
‘‘The chandelier came about from a desire to highlight the beauty of Daum crystal’s intensely layered colour and depth. I felt this was best shown when light floods through the crystal. From that knowledge I built up the idea of a beautiful chandelier where the crystal could be seen at its most magnificent.
For the Eden chandelier my ideas came from the temptation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The very idea that Daum crystal is so tempting it becomes irresistible…. The most delicious of sculptures, a bright rosy red apple, is buried within the leaves glowing temptingly and becomes the surprise and completion of this creation.
[For the limited edition of 8], the bronze sculpted snake winds down the stem into a tree of spectacular crystal leaves all of which glow seductively from within. The chandelier is at once a magnificent sculpture that embodies drama, decorative beauty, surprise and sex appeal.’’
