Mini Voyage is a scaled-down rendition of a chandelier originally conceived by Yves Béhar for Swarovski Crystal Palace, and famously hung in New York’s JFK airport. The original, named Voyage, was a vast 450cm structure that snaked and looped its way across the interior, casting brilliant shards of light over the travellers. No less impressive in its visual effect, Mini Voyage retains all the dynamic design qualities of the original, but is under half the length at 200cm. Nevertheless, it is made up of a staggering 5,000 sparkling Swarovski crystals. This is a real statement piece that’s ideal for high-end spaces that demand a talking point. Mini Voyage is lit internally by white LEDs and has a dimmer function.
