Having just finished a pendant fixture – with a team of interior designers –

for the Keep Austin Bright Competition, I have a few ideas.

You need to figure our how to shield the bulb or luminaire

with a form or shape that can be slumped.

Dangles are easy, as you can embed wires

or create attachment holes with fiber board or fiber paper or

drill holes for mechanical attachments.

Chandeliers are usually open structures

so a metal support framework is usually necessary for spread.

You also need to figure a way to hide the wires and maybe also the support structure.

A single point suspension attachment to the ceiling is needed.

I would suggest drawing up your ideas,

build some samples to be sure that you

know what you want to do will work and then give it a try.
