The epic light chandelier in Ghost In The Shell
Based on the internationally-acclaimed Japanese Anime property originally written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, the all new, live-action Rupert Sanders directed Ghost in The Shell starring Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano and Juliette Binoche is released in cinemas on 30th March 2017.
In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: a human who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to, and her life was not saved. Instead, it was stolen.
Scarlett Johansson is mesmerizing, especially in the 3D IMAX screening we saw earlier this week, as are the scenes of city scapes complete with giant holographic advertising, but it’s the epic chandelier above the japanese style, low-level banqueting table served by Giesha robots (created by Weta Workshop) which caught our eyes.
The lights hanging from the ceiling to form this impressive chandelier are a grouping of Coltane lights by lighting company Delightfull.
The Coltrane design, whose name is influenced by the jazz musician John Coltrane, are available as floor standing lights, wall lights or suspended from the ceiling as seen in Ghost In The Shell.
The canopy of the Coltrane light is gold plated and the shade is black matte with gold powder paint finish inside. The body of each of the shade’s is 100cm long and 8cm diameter. The cord height is fully adjustable. The hanging angle or incline can be adjusted by the eight of the magnet cable. In Ghost In The Shell we see a grouping of dozens of these hanging lights to form one dramatic statement.
We also see single wall Coltane sconce lights in the adjacent corridor in the movie (as seen on the right below)
These same lights have been incorporated with dramatic effect in interior design projects including luxury hotels and restaurants around the world such as the Paramount Hotel in New York and Christopher’s Martini Bar and Restaurant in London.
Coltrane light designs are becoming somewhat of a star in their own right as they also appear in Cottonmouth’s club in Netflix Marvel’s Luke Cage.
