This amazing chandelier is called the Virtue of Blue and is designed by Jeroen Verhoeven for dutch design house Demakersvan. This chandelier is covered with 502 blue butterflies, which are made in the shape of 4 different breeds. These butterflies are not only pretty to look at, they are also the energy source of this whole lamp. The butterflies are actually made out of sapphire-blue solar panel cells, and the piece is self-sustaining as it absorbs the energy of daylight to fuel its own illumination.
This chandelier is not only pretty to look at, but also very eco-friendly and smart. The fact that the butterflies are made out of solar-panels are very cleaver and two different ways: It saves the environment and it gives the butterflies a glittery look and absorbs more light. I like how the shape of the chandelier is abstract and very organized at the same time. The different shapes of the butterflies makes the butterflies look like they are actually flying around like they would in reality. The Virtue of Blue is a smart design, a beautiful design and a very innovative design with a function we will see more of in the near future.
