Light objects in the opera house Copenhagen: 

„Chandeliers“ with triangles of dichroic glass

Today, the new opera house in Copenhagen belongs to the most prominent sight-seeing attractions in the Danish capital. For the foyer, the world famous Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has designed three identical light objects. Instead of the flashing lead crystals of a conventional chandelier, he uses the beaming power of dichroitic filters, pronounced by a special style: 1,500 triangles in 75 different dimensions form the surface.
