LOS ANGELES — February 6, 2017 — LECLAIREUR Los Angeles once again set the stage for guests to experience NATURAL CHAOS Golden Edition No. 1 created by Arne Quinze. The magical piece was showcased in the Residence, located on the third floor of the modern gallery on the famous North Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood.
NATURAL CHAOS is an impressive piece that spans approximately 45 kg of precious metal that was used to produce the 1.30 m × 1.25 m × 1.55 m (L × W × H) work. It is primarily made of 18-carat rose gold and of the finest 18-carat palladium white gold in rod and pipe form, as well as gold wire and leaves, flat strips of gold and various golden jewelry ornaments that VERIDOR prepared beforehand, according to the artist’s designs.
