Rodney Graham’s Spinning Chandelier needed accurate AC electric hoists for the precise positioning of a fragile and expensive chandelier. The 6 – Columbia H10000 hoists provide stability and control for the lowering/raising and spinning maneuvers of this art piece three times a day.
Spinning Chandelier, as the art is named, weighs approximately 7,500 lb. (the weight of roughly two cars), with a height of 25.5 ft and a width of 14 ft. This modern chandelier is suspended with cables and Columbia AC Hoists. The chandelier hangs below the Granville Bridge above the intersection of Beach Avenue and Granville Street.
