Out and About Sharon Marston James Bond Exhibition Shanghai


5 Glamour for 007


The James Bond exhibition opened in Shanghai in March 2013. We find out a little bit more about the chandeliers created by Sharon Marston for this stunning event.


Sharon Marston has been creating bespoke lighting designs and sculptural installations since 1997. Originally she studied jewellery at Middlesex University, she then went on to design for fashion, theatre and dance, with clients including Bella Freud, Paul Smith and The English National Opera. She decided to work with light after becoming interested in how light interacted with woven nylon by chance while photographing costume designs. Recently, Marston has been involved with The James Bond exhibition in Shanghai. The James Bond exhibition opened in Shanghai on 28th March with spectacular chandeliers designed by Sharon Marston. This London lighting designer is renowned for her sculptural use of fibre optics and has created two chandeliers for the touring exhibition. Taking more than eight weeks to make, Laelia the name given to this bespoke chandelier, comprises of 4000 clear glass pieces, each hand blown to Marston specifications and was then assembled on 4000 strands of meandering ultra-fine fibre optic filaments. A second chandelier, Flight, also featured in the exhibition,

combines woven polymer with an end-emitting fibre optic filament in a feathery array of glowing knots and sparkles. Both were chosen because of their glamour and luxury. Fifty Years of James Bond Style, runs


from 28th March to 30th June at the Minsheng Museum Shanghai, China. The touring exhibition was previously staged at London’s Barbican Centre and marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise.
