The swinging chandelier is an object of fun and decadence. Maria Theresa type of historic chandelier, a symbol of lighting and glass craftsmanship, is adapted in a way that allows party animals and dare-devils to ride it, as we can see it in party or heroic run-away scenes in movies. The setting in the nature of bohemian region was chosen for its role as a cradle of the chandelier making craft.
