Spotlight: Manooi’s Halo


A design unlike any other, Halo was the first vertically suspended chandelier composition to be made in Manooi’s own manufactory. The Halo design was first presented at the Light+Building trade fair in Frankfurt in 2016.

This  product is now a celebrated part of the Manooi collection, and was designed by János Héder. Halo gets its name from an optical phenomenon that can sometimes be observed in the sky, forming a circle encompassing the Sun or occasionally the Moon. This optical phenomenon forms as sunlight is refracted in millions of randomly oriented hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere.

Having built up years of experience as an interior designer, designer János Héder knows the difficulties one can encounter when designing an interior. It’s because of this that he always creates his designs with the perspective of solving those problems.

János designed Halo with the intention of keeping an apparent insubstantiality by using a minimum of matter. Halo does this without ever compromising the quality and the effect the luxury lighting fixture rendered.

The Manooi Halo combines a modern, high-quality LED as light source, directed outwards along the lamp curve, with the most luxurious crystal brand: Swarovski. This unique piece reminds us of the excellent capacity and phenomena that light can create.

Every crystal is carefully assembled in small branches, emerging like light beams that are covered with frost. This stunning imagery is not only a spectacle to behold, but it also serves the purpose of diffracting the light into thousands of sparkles.

Whether arranged in horizontal or angled position, Halo will be a real eye-catcher when different diameters are combined. This design is suitable for open spaces or when situated close to a ceiling, making it perfect for hotel lobbies, office receptions, or even private residences.

Much as with Manooi’s manifesto for their own creations, there are no limitations as to where Halo can be positioned. The variety of diameters or the many composition options (with various rings suspended at different distances from one to the other) are what make this versatility possible.
