BIO DNA Pendant

Back to bespoke

  • Architect: FOX Architects

Floating above the central space of the brand new headquarters of the world’s largest biotechnology trade association, Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), is this stunning feature piece known as the DNA Pendant.

Developed with Inter Lux and FOX Architects, this 4 meter tall sculptural luminaire uses a total of 116 LED sources connected to the central spine; illuminating bespoke diffuser rods of 11 different sizes, carefully arranged to reveal the double helix DNA design. The modular design allows for easy installation, maintenance and remanufacture. During the collaboration, Stoane Lighting’s team provided a sample section, photos, renderings and technical drawings in order to accurately communicate the design vision.

The motivation behind the making of this chandelier was to create a striking focal point, to celebrate design and collaboration, and to support the objective of the architecture in reflecting the company’s “mission and commitment to life-saving work.”
