yu jordy fu: cloud walk paper chandelier

designer yu jordy fu developed ‘cloud walk’, a nine meter long horizontal white chandelier made from recycled paper for 100% design london. paper-cutting is a unique art form which chinese women used as a graceful and intricate media to record their lives and adorn their homes. yu jordy fu has used the ancient technique as means to break away from the two dimensional realm and create a dreamlike landscape. the chandelier can be purchased in sections and reinstalled for various residential or commercial uses.

‘I don’t see the chandelier as an object but a space. my passion is to create sensational spaces for people; ‘cloud walk’ celebrates the spatial relationship between people and the city of london – the existing, proposed and imaginary london.’ – YJF
