What I love about this design is its minimalist beauty. I think these would have delighted the great architect Ludwig Mies van der Roche – who adopted the phrase “Less is more”.

From a practicality aspect and your desired overall effect, this can be hung solo or in a cluster. Add in the fact that you have a variety of metallic cables and different finishes on the discs and your options are endless.
