ANKARA PARLIAMENT / TURKEY
Two explosions during the unsuccessful attempt at a coup in the Turkish Parliament Bulding in July 2016 completely destroyed the original crystal chandeliers in the main hall and side corridors. The chandeliers, originally from the 1940s had to be reconstructed from scratch, including glasswork and metal frames.
The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ankara offered this restoration as a gift. Because of the diplomatic importance of the task and a tight schedule, the Czech government searched for a skilled and experience manufacturer and decided that Hunat best fulfills all the criteria.
All chandeliers were produced in accordance with the original designs and technical drawings. Special attention was given to crystal prisms, which were first molded, then hand-cut and brushed. Flowers and stems on the chandeliers in the side corridors were hand-made and hand-shaped. These installations quickly and effectively helped restore and elevate the representative part of the Turkish Parlament.
