Solar Chandelier

i was asked to prepare a series of conceptual design ideas of a ‘solar’ chandelier to bring natural light down through a four-story residential grand staircase. The main idea was to use some sort of solar concentrator, such as a parabolic mirror, which would aim natural light at the end of fiber-optic cables from which the chandelier would largely be made.

This project never made it past the conceptual stage due. However, if you or anyone you know might be interested in pursuing a similar idea, please contact me.
