The Global Data Chandelier is a custom light fixture that doubles as an illuminated data map of the world. The chandelier’s 425 illuminated pendants form a low resolution world map when viewed from below. Global data like energy consumption, renewable water resources, and GDP can be displayed on the map in illuminated animations. The Global Data Chandelier was commissioned by the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington D.C. and was created by Sosolimited, Hypersonic Engineering & Design, Plebian Design, and Chris Parlato.
