The Surilight is a cascading chandelier that is inspired by classical African craft and adornment, in particular paying homage to the decorative earlobe discs worn by the women of the Suri Tribe in Ethiopia. Choosing from four silhouette frames as a base, the Surilight is a self-assembly system based on a series of interlocking circles and other optional components that allow you to configure and customise the chandelier to suit your style. The components are available in a range of finishes that include, metallics, acrylics, and coated steel. In addition to this, a range of trims and adornments made from materials such as Ostrich eggshells, Nguni cow horn, recycled glass beads, and Zulu woven beaded ornaments are also available to further enhance the look of the Surilight.
