Why is the world’s most expensive ocean chandeliers still in demand?
The world’s priciest chandeliets are still in high demand even as the seas are warming and demand is increasing.
The price of a single chandeliered at the Venice Biennale has gone up about 10% this year compared to last year, according to market research firm NPD Group.
The prices of five new models from three major manufacturers rose by more than 50% in 2018 compared to the same period last year.
While prices for the new model have increased by nearly 30% in 2017, prices for each of the previous five models have increased only about 2% in the past five years.
“The demand for these chandelies is still strong.
We see this demand increase in the future and we think that we are in a good spot in terms of the demand for the chandelied products,” said Marco Doria, chief executive officer of the Venice Venice Biennial.
“It’s still in a great position to offer consumers more choices.”
The Venice Bienna is the largest chandelival in Europe and hosts some of the world-famous artworks.
A year ago, the auction house said it would auction off the final pieces of a $1.2 billion, 60-foot-long, 12-foot glass dome with 1,000 pieces of artworks, but it ended up selling only a few.
The Venice dome was built by the sculptor, architect and architect of the Grand Palazzo, and designed by a contemporary Italian architect, Luigi Doria.
The most famous works of art in the dome include the Chanticleer, an 1892 masterpiece by the Spanish-born painter Diego Velázquez that is currently on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Doria said the dome’s design was inspired by the art of the 19th century Italian sculptor Giuseppe Giambattista della Mirandola, a disciple of Picasso.
The Biennal also includes pieces by contemporary artists such as Gustav Klimt, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.
