UNICEF Snowflake

UNICEF Snowflake

UNICEF Snowflake
The UNICEF Snowflake is the largest outdoor chandelier of its kind, weighing about 3,300 pounds and containing more than 16,000 Baccarat crystal prisms. It was designed, engineered and entirely handcrafted by designer Ingo Maurer and his team in Germany, in a unique collaboration with Baccarat.

For more than 20 years, the Snowflake has been a New York City holiday attraction. Since 2002, when it was dedicated to UNICEF by the Stonbely Family Foundation, it has been a beacon of hope, peace and compassion for vulnerable children around the world. UNICEF Snowflake, symbol of hope
