Markus Benesch looked for inspiration in the Greek methodology of the Golden Fleece. The myth is known, that a prince named Phrixus was given a golden Ram as a gift from the king of gods, Zeus. When the golden Ram died Phrixus wove the most magnificent and precious drapery of all – THE GOLDEN FLEECE. Using simple yet refined raw brass elements, this installation pushes the boundaries of brass manufacturing and latest LED technology to create an interwoven piece, which celebrates a newly created magnificent chandelier with rigorous architectural forms.
