Lobmeyr Still Shines at The Met after 50 Years

By Allison Merchant

June 24, 2016

The evening of May 15, Lobmeyr reminisced the unveiling of its iconic chandeliers 50 years ago at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center in New York. To celebrate, the brand invited guests to an evening of the stars, paying homage to Hans Harald Rath’s starburst chandeliers designed in 1966.

These crystal constellations created a galaxy above the Met Opera’s staircase and remained there until 2008. The chandeliers returned to Lobmeyr Vienna Workshops for restoration, funded by Swarovski, where 49,000 crystals were replaced with new custom-made crystals.

Now lighting the Met Opera once more, new original chandeliers from the Met Collection welcomed home the classic Lobmeyr chandeliers. Highlight products also joined the evening including the Hoffmann Bronzit drinking set, which was part of MoMA’s design collection, at ICFF from May 14 – 17. The celebration of Lobmeyr also coincided the 50th anniversary of the Met Opera making the evening sparkle in more ways than one.
