Philipp Plein’s Mega Mansion is a boutique entirely dedicated to luxury menswear and lifestyle. Its design aims for avant-garde luxury, and it needed something both raw and precious.

Ermes collaborated with CLS Architects to create this magnificent chandelier composed by thousands of raw crystal rocks falling from the third floor all the way down to the foyer. It looks like a spectacular frozen waterfall, one of the most incredible sculptures one can find in nature.

When a large amount of Murano glass is taken from the fournace and thrown into ice-cold water, it freezes and cracks, shattering in tens of smaller pieces, called 'cotissi'.
