As the latest design from renowned bespoke British lighting brand Cameron Design House, the Helmi takes inspiration from Founder Ian Cameron’s Finnish hometown of Turku and explores contemporary themes of contrast within the impressive urban structure. With the concept of Helmi first formed during a fishing trip in the city’s bordering Aura River, the design was developed in London after a visit to the Hayward Gallery. Meaning ‘pearl’ in Finnish, the Helmi chandelier is designed with a 24-carat gold plated, industrial net that displays a collection of exquisite glass pearls.
“It is true that light naturally draws the eye, so what holds that light should always be visually stunning. The Helmi chandelier creates a contemporary centrepiece with contrasts in delicacy and industrial influence ensuring the design complements the architecture of any space. Carefully crafted to make a statement at any angle, the Helmi reveals subtle changes to the structure and glow of light as you walk around the room.”
Founder & Creative Director of Cameron Design House
Hand blown in London, each glass pearl is illuminated by a single LED filament bulb and suspended effortlessly in the air by the interwoven gold chains that create the sculptural net. The subtle LED light within each pearl combines as a collective to introduce a warm, inviting ambience to the surrounding space. Celebrating intricate complexities, the Helmi design explores contrast at its core with the delicacy of hand blown glass held in place by industrial net chains and the use of luxury materials inspired by a fisherman’s net. With the glass pearls available in a variety of colours, the bespoke service from Cameron Design House provides colour and finish options that allow the Helmi to be tailored to any project specification or contemporary space.
