Work: Maria S.C. chandelier is made from laboratory test tubes, set in two plywood bands. This surprising material and geometric shape makes this lamp both classic and innovative. The double glass cylinder recalls Art Deco forms in a unique contemporary way. The use of ready-made objects gives an appearance with a Duchamp idea. The lamp is inspired by the Polish scientist, Maria Sklodowska-Curie, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The tubes are detachable and the lamp provides the opportunity for visual experiment by creating a variety of configurations and flower arrangements.

She designs products which can be changed and rearranged together with spaces and which also awaken your own creativity. For example, a lighting fixture turns into a vase, a tablecloth into a playhouse. She credits her design approach in part to growing up in Polish prefabricated apartment blocks during the nineteen eighties. Within limited spaces, products needed to be compact and also multi-functional. She is also an advocate sustainability. With items which can be used in multiple ways, you can limit your purchasing needs.

Polish designer Pani Jurek brought test tube chandeliers to prominiscence with her Maria S.C. design which she sells through Etsy. These versatile chemistry-inspired lamp shades feature test tubes which rest in holes drilled around a plywood ring. The glass tubes can then be filled with a variety of different decorative things such as coloured water, pebbles or flowers. Pani Jurek was inspired by the double Nobel Prize winning scientist Marie Curie and entitled her test tube chandelier ‘Maria S.C.’ after the Polish scientist’s original – but less well known – name Maria Skłodowska-Curie. Lamps shades and chandeliers essentially serve as the centrepieces in rooms but aren’t often altered or personalised. Test tube chandeliers on the other hand can be changed to suit your mood, the season, or new interior design styles by incorporating different decorative features within their glass tubes.

Decorating your test tube chandelier tends to primarily revolve around the tube’s capacity to hold water which allows it to play host to flowers in a similar way to a single stem vase. The water can also be coloured using dyes to form rainbow spectrums, the warm hues of autumn or various shades of a particular colour to match a room’s colour scheme.

Simple food or powdered dyes can be used for colouring the water by mixing varying quantities of the primary colours to create a colour wheel. However if you’re hoping to create a vibrant set of colours, as opposed to what are commonly referred to as ‘mud’ colours, I’d strongly suggest incorporating the true primary colours: cyan, magenta and yellow, as opposed to the commonly held but false primary colours red, yellow and blue. This brilliant article clearly demonstrates the reasoning behind this and will surely change the way you look at colours henceforth.

There is of course the obvious issue of the coloured water evaporating over time, and also of mould taking hold on the wood and glass. My suggestion to combat these nuisances would be to mix in small quantities of ethanol (pure alcohol) with your coloured water to kill off bacteria, as well as stoppering the tubes with simple corks to drastically slow the effects of evaporation. Instructables user LostRite posted this guide for making your own DIY test tube chandelier although the end result certainly doesn’t look as refined as Pani Jurek’s brilliantly made Maria S.C. version. However the writer of the guide seems to have been going for a more rustic feel with his test tube chandelier by opting for dark stained hardwood as opposed to plywood, and by incorporating far fewer test tubes into the chandelier which are arranged at jaunty angles. The writer of the Instructables guide also mentioned having difficulty in mixing a vibrant purple colour, so if you happen to be reading this try mixing cyan and magenta! I think it would be possible to emulate the Maria S.C. plywood versions if you’re looking for a DIY project, have a decent set of power tools to hand, and are prepared to be meticulous with the details. However if this doesn’t sound like your idea of fun then head over to the Pani Jurek Etsy shop and buy one of hers direct. Her test tube chandeliers come complete with the glass tubes so perhaps aren’t as expensive as they might look at first glance.

A ideia é da designer polonesa Pani Jurek, ela reaproveitou tubos de ensaio, aqueles que usávamos nos experimentos químicos no colégio, e montou um lustre super diferente! O lustre foi feito inspirado na cientista polonesa Maria Skłodowska-Curie, dona de um prêmio Nobel de química. O mais legal é que, além do lustre ser muito bonito com os tubos vazios, também é possível preenchê-los com qualquer coisa, flores, líquidos coloridos, e porque não sais coloridos?

Die polnische Designerin Pani Jurek hatte eine genial einfache Idee: Lampen aus Reagenzgläser. Und die kann man sogar käuflich erwerben. Feine Sache das, doch schaut selbst

Maria Sklodowska-Curie fue la primera mujer en ganar un Premio Nobel, y hasta el momento es la única mujer que ha ganado premios en 2 campos: física y química. Su investigación sobre la radioactividad y el descubrimiento de los elementos radio y polonio le valieron el reconocimiento en química. Desde los 24 años hasta poco antes de su muerte en 1934, Marie Curie vivió entre tubos de ensayo y le dedicó su vida a la ciencia. La lámpara Maria SC es un homenaje de Pani Jurek hacia esta gran mujer.

Esta lámpara parece un gran candelabro de cristal, muy al estilo Art Deco. Sin embargo, en realidad está compuesta de decenas de tubos de ensayo que se insertan dentro de un marco circular de madera. Esta construcción le proporciona a María SC una flexibilidad casi sin límites para la experimentación visual. Puedes llenar cada uno de los tubos con agua entintada en diferentes colores o experimentar rellenado con diferentes objetos o como lo hace Jurek con flores.

El único pero que le veo es la limpieza. Además de la complicación de limpiar cada uno de los tubos de ensayo, esta actividad me transportaría a el laboratorio de química de la secundaria, una materia que prefiero no recordar.

Para Pani Jurek el diseño es una especie de rompecabezas muy ambiguo, por lo que le gusta diseñar sin pensar en las implicaciones comerciales de lo que hace. Tal vez es por ello que, por el momento, esta lámpara es sólo un concepto.
