Chandeliers made from ship engine valves.
Imagine a 130 meter long cargo-boat moving past with a speed of 15 knots, with 12,000 metric tonnes of cargo space and a 6500 horsepower engine. In engines like this, the flow of air is harnessed by massive valves, moving with precision and at an astounding speed.
Valves are made of valuable steel alloys that can withstand the high pressures and temperatures. Every few years, a ship’s valves have to be checked and eventually replaced.
Es.ontwerp transforms these valves into the robust yet elegant Chandeliers.
