Fibre Optic Chandeliers
Eye Catching, Dramatic, the Wow Factor, all describe a stunning fibre optic chandelier from Starscape.
Starscape’s Fireworks Chandelier. We made our first Fireworks chandelier as an experiment in using the fibres in a less formal arrangement, without crystals at the ends of the fibres. It had a 2-metre drop with 260 fibres arranged in a series of concentric tiered rings. Most chandeliers use a 3 x 0.75mm sparkle fibre, but here we used a single strand of 0.75mm sparkle fibre which produces a more delicate effect, while still bright.
There were eight separate tiers, with odd numbers lit by one light source and even numbers by a second. Combine this with our very versatile MiniLED750 DMX light source and the result is a huge combination of effects, particularly when being used with a DMX controller. Please do take into account that the video shows the chandelier in a very active mode in order to display lots of effects in a short video – it can just as well be run in a very subtle mode, according to mood and preference.
The chandelier has 2460 strands of 0.50mm end glow fibre at varying lengths to 3 metres. Powered by a MaxiLEDRGBW light source, the chandelier can colour change, sparkle and strobe. The supporting tray is powder coated steel (supply us with a RAL colour) and can be mounted in a variety of ways.
This chandelier is available to a maximum drop of 10 metres with a theoretical maximum fibre number of 7380. A stunning centrepiece for any location?
