Given the size of the chandelier and the number of fixtures available, this collection would be very suitable for a large interior design project.

As the company name suggests, Raak aimed at the professional market from the start on. In the 30 years Raak existed it produced many daring models, quite often designed by prominent artists like Tapio Wirkkala, Sergio Asti , Casati & Ponzio and Lomazzi, D’Urbino & De Pas. The exceptional large and diverse creative output during the 1960’s and 1970’s makes the company stand out in Dutch design history.
