Model B1033 by RAAK Amsterdam also know as Sterrenbeeld (Zodiac) is a large chandelier with 71 volcanic glass spheres. Each sphere is hanging on a separate metal string. The three light bulbs which light up the spheres, are hidden between the 71 glass bulbs. The catalog of RAAK is quite poetic about this chandelier: ‘A piece of the galaxy, a valley of stars, floating in the endless nothing’. It is recommended to use three bright bulbs up to 100W (E27).
