at New Business Residence Bruce Munro announces a fabulous new design: The Quantum Pop Cascade Chandelier.


This beautiful piece is soon to be installed in the stairwell of Dryland Business Residences, the first of a new generation of hybrid serviced offices and members clubs. Located on Kensington High Street in central London, the new venture is masterminded by Jon Hunt, founder of Foxtons Estate Agency. The Quantum Pop chandelier is a fibre optic piece, like many of Bruce Munro’s special lighting fixtures. Munro also keeps an eye on energy consumption, as is his wont, by using a single 150 W metal halide projector. However, this design marks a new departure, entering into a significantly more complex vocabulary for his chandeliers, and edging ever closer to the values of his well-known art installations such as Field of Light and CDSea.

Quantum Pop Cascade is a large-scale ‘waterfall’ of 6 pendants, each measuring nearly a metre in diameter (90 cm). They are staggered up and down the central stairwell with a drop of 10 metres, and suspended from a crescent shaped ceiling plate, detailed to suit the curve of the staircase at Dryland. Each 90cm sphere is stuffed with 23 small spheres, illuminated by 5 fibre optic cables curled within them. It’s as if the smaller spheres describe the minimum value of the larger spheres - hence the name ‘Quantum Pop’. Here Munro is tipping his hat to British science and the recent 350th anniversary of the Royal Society. Munro’s new design reflects the innovation within the Dryland building, which is equipped with business cabins,


cutting edge technology and ‘service to your desk’. Residents will benefit from an all inclusive membership fee, without hidden extras or nasty surprises, (a welcome detail in these careful times), and Dryland is eagerly anticipated as a most fertile place to do business in the capital.
