Slamp


New Brand – Slamp


Slamp began in 1992, founded by luxury Italian designer Roberto Ziliani. After working in the design industry for over a decade he decided he wanted to create an accessible, cool object that would revolutionise lighting.


Ziliani says, “When I founded Slamp, I wanted to bring something completely new to the design panorama, uniting almost artisan skill with the excellence of industrial production”.


Slamp


Slamp devotes itself to decorative design lamps, capturing the most current tends and drawing on the natural world, architectonic, sartorial virtuosity and artistic developments. Slamp transforms these into luminous objects, which are both suggestive and versatile. They do this thanks to the use of a new generation of materials and special manual assembly of parts that, once put together, gives life to a luxurious, figurative panorama.

Marset


New Marset Online


Follow Me Plus


Marset


Three years ago Inma Bermúdez designed the original Follow Me and now Marset have launched a new version in a larger size and a greater light output; Follow Me Plus.


The Follow Me Plus is a beautiful portable lamp which creates a great atmosphere and can work as a table, desk or even floor light. 


The design features an oak handle which invites you to carry it with you.


A three-position dimmer regulates the light intensity, allowing for a continuous output of between 5 to 20 hours, and the micro USB charging cable makes charging your FollowMe Plus quick and easy.


Click here to view the Follow Me Plus!


Bicoca


Marset


The brand new Bicoca table is designed by Christophe Mathieu. This new colourful, lightweight portable lamp projects an intimate light that adds warmth to all your personal spaces.


Made of polycarbonate, Bicoca begins with an overlay of basic geometric figures, with a tiltable shade to direct the light.


There also three separate accessories which increase the versatility of the lamp. A powerful magnet can be affixed to the bottom of the fixture, allowing you to attach it to metal surfaces -even vertical walls- defying gravity. An armchair accessory drapes over armrests, sofa backs, or headboards, so you can bring your Bicoca to all your personal reading spaces. You can also get a metallic disc accessory which hides discreetly beneath a tablecloth, securing your Bicoca to your table.


The design is available in a wide range of shade and has one perfect for any space.


Click here to view the Bicoca!


Djembé


Marset


Like the echo of a drum, the Djembé collection is designed for repetition, creating musical compositions of light on the ceiling. The new collection is designed by Joan Gaspar who wanted to design a fixture with a vastly different interior to exterior. 


The bell-shaped exterior recalls the texture of a stone while the interior is a smooth white space which perfectly reflects the light.


Djembé is available in a number sizes and bright colours that can be used individually or combined to create a brilliant statement piece. A separate accessory allows for the installation of sound-proofing panels.


Click here to view the Djembé collection!


Piola


Marset


Designed by Christophe Mathieu the Piola collection represents the search for a balance between the diffusion of light and the creation of shadows.


The central metal column holds more than 5 metres of spiralling, laminated banding which protects the light creating a comforting feel.


Several different types of light coexist; direct downward light, indirect reflected light, and a light that sneaks between the edges of the spiral, illuminating the fixture itself with a warm, homey glow.


The Piola is available in four colours, with the structure and screen always in the same colour.


Click here to view the Piola collection!


Pu-erh


Marset


The new Pu-erh pendant collection uses ceramics as to create a delicate, fabric-like effect. The name Pu-erh is inspired from a variety of fermented tea produced in the Yunnan province, china, which is named after the town of Pu'er.


Designer and ceramist Xavier Mañosa has created a texture, evoking pleated silk, which is then applied to a conical shade, casting a wide and beautiful ray of illumination.


The Pu-reh began with a rough hand drawn sketch which then was applied directly to the ceramic mould creating a lamp with irregular variations and a raw, natural effect. The craftsman barely intervenes, letting the lamp take shape naturally within the mould.


This new collection of suspension lamps is available in three sizes—21, 32, and 42cm—and available in black, white, blue, burgundy and pink.

Muuto


New in from Muuto


We’ve recently added some of Muuto’s latest designs online and below we have all you need to know about the latest must haves.


Tip Table


Muuto


The Tip table is created from the idea of stripping a design down to its essentials. The design is by Jens Fager, one of Sweden’s most interesting young designers. Fager graduated from Stockholm’s KonstfackUniversity and has made his mark on the international design scene with exhibitions in London, Milan and Stockholm. The table light is an example of a simple, functional design with careful attention to detail offering a direct as well as ambient light.
The power coated aluminium frame is available in a range of colours and has a dimmer function enabling you to effortlessly control the light intensity. 


“TIP is a purist yet playful lamp that features a characteristic architectural silhouette. During the design process, I focused on polishing every single detail while emphasising the functional aspect of the lamp: I wanted to reduce the design to the very essence of its purpose. The moulded aluminium frame lends the Tip Lamp a clean, precise look, underscoring its subtle aesthetic.” Jens Fager.


Click here to view the Tip Table!


Airy Table


Muuto


The new Airy table collection is a design by one of Scandinavia’s leading designers, Cecilie Manz. Airy consist of a polished plywood table top and a metal frame which is soldered and welded to create a light and skinny silhouette. The collection is available in four different sizes, shapes and colours; grey, black, Oregon pine or off white.


“The idea behind AIRY was to create a coffee table that did not scream but still was not afraid to speak. The result is a table series that masters the fine balance between being light and airy, and at the same time having plenty of personality and individuality. Due to this combination AIRY gets a multi-functionality that makes the side tables suitable for every kind of interior.” Cecilie Manz.

Loft Chair


Muuto


The loft chair by designer Thomas Bentzen is inspired by life’s everyday requirements.  The chairs design is simple and honest with contrasting materials. Loft’s solid, powder coated steel frame is offset with the warmth of plywood and is a nostalgic nod to industrial design. The visible screws further enhance the engineered feel and the materials provide a functional yet sophisticated chair fitting for any setting.


“The steel frame features simple joints and welds, lending a precise and solid appearance to the chair. The curved seat and backrest contrast this, making the Loft Chair very human and comfortable.” Thomas Bentzen

Bocci


New in from Bocci


76 Series


Bocci


 The new 76 series from Bocci is composed of hot white and clear glass with a copper mesh between. A vacuum is introduced which causes the white layer to pull away through the embedded mesh. The Pendant has a beautiful brushed nickel canopy and is available with customisable lengths and compositions.


Click here to view the 76 collection!


84 Series


Bocci


Brand new from Bocci, the 84 pendant is a white glass moil captured inside a fine copper mesh basket which is then plunged into hot clear glass. Air is then blown into the matrix to gently push the white glass through the mesh, creating a delicate pillowed form that is suspended inside the thick outer layer of clear glass. Each piece is hand made with the copper mesh basket sometimes folding and crinkling, adding a unique touch to each light.


The pendant drop lengths are customisable and are available with either a low-voltage Xenon or LED light source.


Click here to view the 83 collection!


87 Series


Bocci


The new 87 series is created using soda water to trap air in a super heated glass matrix which is vertically stretched and folded back onto itself between pegs numerous times. As the glass cools, the folding motion traps the air along the loop and gives the light its pearlescent optical quality.


The pendant is suspended from a canopy with swag hooks, enabling the pendants to be hung in any number of points and create a beautiful illusion.


As with the 84 series the 87 pendants drop length are customisable and available either a low-voltage Xenon or LED light source.

Foscarini


New finishes to the Foscarini collections


Tuareg


Foscarini


The existing Tuareg floor collection designed in 2013 now includes a matt white finish. Based on the architecture of archaic cultures, the Tuareg is a lamp with a powerful image like a work of land art in an interior landscape.


The structure is composed of aluminium tubing which creates a vivid and dynamic three dimensional form. The new matt white finish joins the original matt orange and glossy black.


Click here the view the Tuareg collection!


Le Soleil


Foscarini


A sphere composed of irregular bands, the Le Soleil pendant is large in size but visually light. When on, thanks to the bands, the light flows outward like sunbeams glimpsing through a cloud. 


The Le soleil is now available with an integrated LED which creates a decorative and illuminating effect at the same time as a beam of light being projected downwards.


The Le Soleil is now available in an original copper and bronze finish that brings a new personality, enhancing the warm, natural glow of the lamp.


Click here to view the Le Soleil collection!


Spokes


Foscarini


The Spokes lamp is based on an observation of the spokes of a bicycle wheel, generating an object of great iconic force. Today the Spokes range now includes metallised finishes making the spokes seem even more slender and precious. The collection is now available in an elegant graphite and a warm copper tone which transform the presence of Spokes and opens up a world of decor possibilities.

Foscarini


New in from Foscarini


Satellight


Foscarini


The new collection Satellight by Foscarini is designed by Eugeni Quitllet, a graduate from Llotja ArtSchool in Barcelona. Satellight is a simple, immediately understandable object but at the same time it is original and profound in its poetic lightness, that goes straight to the heart. 


The diffuser is handcrafted milk white blown glass which is placed in a transparent blown glass body that like magic seems to support the core of the satellight, capturing its light.


When on thanks to a dimmable LED source it gives a warm, soft and gentle light adding precious reflections to the shiny transparent glass of the enclosure. The collection includes a suspension and table version which are both available online now.


Click here to view the Satellight collection!


Filo


Foscarini 


The new Filo table design by Andrea Anastasio comes from the desire to display the individual parts that go into a lamp; the light source, decoration and electrical wiring. The character of the lamp is the result of using decoration to play a fundamental role, incorporating elements that are not traditionally considered decorative. The wire which allows the lamp to perform its purpose runs along through the cord, spheres and bulbs of glass which transform the design into the archetype of a necklace.


The table lamps has a wide range of colour options from watercolour tones to the transparent hues of Murano glass, bright colours with ethnic colours to the fluorescent tones of contemporary cityscapes, making it a light fitting in a wide range of settings.


Click here to view the Filo table lamp!


Arumi


Foscarini


Arumi, designed by Lecidi e Pevere reflects Foscarini’s ability to transform an industrial object made in die-cast aluminium alloy, into a finely crafted artefact. Handcrafted, the irregular finish of all the outer surfaces and the three reliefs bring rhythm to the piece. The pendant is a precious elegant pendant and beautiful either on or off. When on the luminous part has been designed to be gentle on eye of the observer and soft in its light emission to enhance the elegance of the polished interior.


The LED light source is shielded from view as placed inside a very pure transparent cylinder specifically designed to project the beam onto the polished inner walls and projects the light downwards. Arumi can be used on its own, in cluster or in linear compositions with the Foscarini multiple ceiling plate.

Louis Poulsen


Now Available


We recently showed you the latest 3 releases from Louis Poulsen and we are super excited to announce that they are now available to order online. The releases include the new Yuh collection, the new finishe of the VL38 and the new finishes of the Doo-Wop.


David Village Lighting


                                          Yuh                                          VL38                                     Doo-Wop


In addition the fourth release from Louis Poulsen, the new PH5 Mini suspension, will be available from the beginning of October.


The PH5 Mini is a smaller version of the original PH5 design by Poul Henningsen in 1958. The PH5 was introduced as a classic new product, one that is completely glare-free.


Louis Poulsen


With the PH5 design Henningsen wanted to improve the colour reproduction of the light source. Small red and blue shades were inserted to supplement the colour in the part of the spectrum where the eye is least sensitive – the red and blue areas – thereby subduing the light in the middle yellow-green region where the eye is most sensitive.


The new PH 5 Mini is introduced with an innovative new colour palette, developed in collaboration with colour expert Louise Sass with the darkest tone at the top and then softened shade by shade.


The Mini will be available in the Classic colour version of PH 5, a new contemporary white, and an additional six colour finishes: Hues of Orange, Hues of Rose, Hues of Red, Hues of Green, Hues of Blue and Hues of Grey.

Bover


New in from Bover


Bover has recently released their latest products for 2017 and below we have all you need to know about the new collections.


Drop


Bover


The Drop’s goal was clear from the beginning: to make a cascade pendant available with 1,6,7,12,24,36 and 48 pendants suspended. From the initial pendant design then came several wall lights, two table lamps and a floor lamp with a support tray and USB connection. The Drop’s small screen is made from borosilicate glass, finer and more delicate than blown glass.


"I was looking for a very bright light, and the translucent glass and its shape contribute to it. The light source is an LED that is hidden so that light is the only protagonist. Then, when the light is projected and reflected in the materials that are found along the way, it creates a set of sparkles and shadows. Its light is intimate, but it also has a practical utility for those who are nearby.” Designer Christophe Mathieu


Click here to view the Drop collection!


Drip


Bover


The Drip collection has the same structure as the Drop but is a diverse design with a personality of its own. The Drip’s small lampshade is also made of borosilicate glass but with the different shade it gives the impression of a completely different lamp. The versatile design of the Drips fits perfectly both in residential and commercial settings with the choice of glass creating a brilliant light.


Click here to view the Drip collection!


Marietta


Bover


The Marietta is a contemporary, decorative, warm, and enveloping outdoor pendant deigned by Joana Bover. The lamp is designed for outdoor terraces, and also for kitchens and bars. The design is a perfect go-to for all these space with its versatility and easy clean shade.  Designer, Joana is always looking for versatility in her designs and works to create pieces which can stand next to classic or contemporary designs. The outdoor suspension is made from white polyethylene with a wave-like texture form.


"Every little detail of Marietta Outdoor was thought about a thousand times. Bover takes this precise approach with every lamp they design. This is what separates many products from others. The quality lies not only in the materials but also in the industrial development behind them." Joana


Click here to view the Marietta!


Penta


Bover


In 1996 Gonzalo Milà and Juan Carlos Ines designed a lamp made of aluminium. Until now the design had only been a prototype but the time has come for it to be launched with a very important change, replacing the initial folded plate with the stamping technique. The Penta family is made up of a suspension, a table and a floor light each with three finishes; brass, aluminium and copper. Choose a corner and let Penta create its warm atmosphere, either illuminating a space or as mood lighting thanks to the incorporated dimmer.


“The premise was to make an interior lamp in which you could have a lightened surface that doesn’t dazzle”. Gonzalo Milà and Juan Carlos Ines

The Brokis Macaron collection was released earlier this year and pays homage to the beauty and complex structures of crystalline stone. Enclosed in delicate handblown glass is a stone plate which seems afloat within the opposing domes. The light casts an upwards glow from the base while the centre plate creates a subtle and mesmerizing lighting effect from the chalcedony veins.


Brokis


The concept is based on the principle of illuminating stone and the collections name refers to the similar shape of the famed French meringue confection. Natural imperfections in the glass make each light a unique original and the purity of the natural materials and artisanship applied gives the light an extraordinary ambience.


Brokis


The Brokis Macaron comes in three sizes, the largest of which also makes a great floor light. The family is available in several glass colours options and with either white or honey onyx. The collection offers an alternate version featuring a centre plate made of fused glass shards in combination with a wooden base.

Coming soon... Cestita Bateria


Santa and Cole Cestita Santa and Cole Cestita


The classic design of Cestita by Santa & Cole gets a modern new addition to its set of features! The original style was created in 1962 by visionary designer Miguel Mila, featuring a cherry wood handle which allows the user to take the lamp further. Even back in the 60’s people were fascinated with the ability to move usually fixed items to exactly where they need them.


Santa and Cole Cestita


Now with the increase of battery operated devises, the portability of products has become more important. The progression from the classic style was to take away the cable and let the small Cestita go wherever the user needs it to.


Keeping its integrity, Cestita has no unsightly charging port or add on bulky battery. The design stays original but with a new found place in modern day life.

Louis Poulsen


New A/W Collection from Louis Poulsen


As we approach Autumn/Winter we’re giving you a sneak peak at Louis Poulsen latest releases. The product launch includes 1 brand new design and additional finishes to 3 of Louis Poulsen most popular classics. The releases will be online and available to purchase from September 2017.


Yuh


Louis Poulsen


Yuh is a brand new collection designed by GamFratesi which includes a floor, table and wall version. Yuh is the phonetic form of ‘you’; the letters represents the sound made by the voice to say “you”. 


The shade’s design is light and flexible, being able to be raised, lowered or tilted. One of the essential features of the lamp is for it to be personal, a lamp created just around you. The lamp has a built in LED which provides a high quality of light and a button placed on the upper tube on the table and floor and on the bracket for the wall which acts as a switch and dimmer. Available in black or white.


Doo-Wop


Louis Poulsen


The Doo-wop pendant was originally introduced in 1952 and was a design from close cooperation between the Danish navy buildings department and Louis Poulsen. The pendant was taken out of the range in 1982 then later reintroduced in 2012 in new colours and a brass version.  Now Louis Poulsen is rereleasing the design with two new polished metal variants; Copper and Stainless Steel. The pendant primarily provides a directed downward soft light while the outer main shade provides light up and down while at the same time spreading a soft diffused glow. By the end of the year the blue, green and red finishes will be discontinued. The family will then consist of dark grey, white, brass, copper and steel.


VL38 Black/Brass


Louis Poulsen


The VL38 table was originally designed in the late 1930’s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. In fall 2016 the VL38 was relaunched in white/brass. Now in 2017 Louis Poulsen had released the black edition which has a stronger outline than the original whilst maintaining the loved retro look and the soft, curvy expression of the original design. The design emits a downward directed light with the shade adjustable to optimise the light distribution. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light.


The finial release will be unveiled at the beginning of September so keep an eye on our blog for the latest news!

Foscarini


Product focus – Foscarini Chouchin


 The Foscarini Chouchin is a family of suspension lamp with the original design released in 2011 by French designer Ionna Vautrin. The name is taken from traditional Japanese paper and bamboo lanterns that are used as light bright signs outside restaurants or bars or as lucky charms outside homes.


Foscarini


Their traditional shape has been reinterpreted into a pure contemporary style using blown glass which has been painted to make it completely opaque and glossy. The family includes three shapes, each with its colour: orange for the large version, grey for the small version and green for the elongated one.


 Next in the collection came the Mini version which was released in 2013. This version is available in two shapes and again each with its colour: orange for the large version and green for the elongated one. Similar as with the larger on the lower rim remains white to create a distinguishing graphic mark when the lamp is switched off and an incandescent luminous border when it is on. The Chouchin Mini is designed to be hung alone as a poetic suspended lantern or in a row, group, or even as a collective with larger models.


Foscarini


The third design of the family is the Chouchin reverse. The design has the same three shapes as before but the colours have been inverted; the diffuser is now white while the lower rim is the colour as the shape before. The change in the design is not only the colour but the light as now thanks to the pale glass diffuser it not only directs light down - like the original Chouchin - but diffuses a beautiful glow to its surroundings.

Artemide


An exclusive interview with Giuseppe Scutella


While in Milan visiting Euroluce; the largest lighting exhibition in the world, our very own David Village got the chance to interview designer Giuseppe Scutella. He has designed many masterpieces throughout his career with one of his most recent pieces being the Artemide Pirce.


We took this chance to learn more about the way Giuseppe Scutella creates his beautiful design and what inspires him the most.


Artemide


(David Village and Giuseppe Scutella)


David VillageWhat attracts you to lighting design and do you prefer this to other types of product design? 


Giuseppe Scutella: My preference is for designing lights because for me a light is completely different from other items, say a chair or a library. Why, because the light is alive, it is an object which is alive. In the morning when we wake, we see light coming through the window and you can feel its effect. Light is the only product that can exist without the shape, only through the effect that it produces. This particular for me is always very important not only because we can always turn a light off or turn on, but because it is completely different from all others products. Mario Bellini, a famous designer a few years ago thought that one chair is enough, because a chair is only an object. But for a designer like me each light is completely different. With each light we design we can put inside our emotions which cannot exist in other products. For this reason 80% of my energy in a year will be working on lighting designs and the light which they produce.


David VillageSo you prefer to design lighting rather than objects, even though it can be more technical?


Giuseppe Scutella: Yes. We have the interesting change now from electrics to electronics. It is a bit like when analogue changed to digital. We must change to the new technology with all new designs but it’s very important for me to still keep the emotional effect of the lamp.When I see a lamp I have to feel it. The first thing we see after 9 months inside our mother is the light. The last thing we ever see is the light. For me it is very very important - I have a real passion for the light.


David VillageYour work ranges widely in both form and style. Tell us about some of your favourites.


Giuseppe Scutella: I do not have only one style because I think it’s more important to be free and to use as many styles as possible. I can say, however, that I do not like any designs which are too decorative, for example the Memphis style and any which are overly fussy. I have many passions, for example art, sculpture and photography which I draw on when thinking of a new product. For example the Pirce is a sculpture with the light inside or a light with sculpture on the outside.


Artemide


(Parentesi)


David Village: Are there any other lights that you like?


Giuseppe Scutella: There are many lights which I like but if you ask me which is the best lamp ever produced then I have two favourites which are very very exciting – the perfect lamps. The first one is the Parentesi by Achille Castiglioni and the second is the Eclisse by Vico Magistretti. Achille Castiglioni, I don’t remember when exactly but around 1962, when I was born, he created the perfect light without sculpture. It’s so simple. The Parentesi has a tube which can move along the tensioned wire with a spotlight head. There isn’t another light quite like this because the light is like a sun which can easily be moved. The first time that I saw the lamp I didn’t appreciate the concept but after one second I understood how it is great, how it is amazing and clever. This lamp is more resistant to time for the next 20/30 years - it is evergreen. The second one is Eclisee. It’s like a child with a light. You put your hands in front of your face to shade the light and use a simple movement to alter the amount of light which escapes. These two examples are my favourites.


Artemide


(Eclisee)


David Village: Do the designers and design scene in Milan inspire your work?


Giuseppe Scutella: Absolutely. The first one is Achille Castiglioni but there are many Italian designers I like very much. For example, I think one of the greatest master designers was Burno Munari who wrote about 10 books on design. If you read his book which was written about 15 years ago it defines everything that will happen for the next 50 years. The next designer, who I was l lucky to have known when he was alive, is Angelo Mangiarotti.


Artemide(Angelo Mangiarotti)


He was the designer of the Lesbo table lamp for Artemide and other great pieces. When I was lucky to know him, he was 88 years old. I found that I have never met another person like him with such a fresh intellect as his, with childlike enthusiasm for everything. We worked together on a project to design interior products and this great master at 88 years old still had the mind of a young boy. Every time I spoke to him I wanted to design things, but not like him as that would be impossible, but anyway to try. Another designer I like the drawings of is Enzo Mari with his simple line, but there are many designers who inspire me. I live about 80km from Milan so the first designers that I was fortunate to know were Italian. From other countries I very much like the Bauhaus and even today you see its influence at the Salone Del Mobile Furniture Fair. I don’t know where the original good idea comes from but some designers don’t take risks, they play safe, but others are full of ideas. I want to be where any ideas can come.


Artemide


(Lesbo)


David Village: The Pirce is one of Artemide best selling pendant lights, what inspired its architectural form?


Giuseppe Scutella: Pirce is the very melting pot of my passion. I love very much, for example, sculpture and art, and I love naturally the light. When you see Pirce you can understand that, whether it is on or off it’s like a sculpture. For me it is important to give people many different points of view.  If you walk around the Pirce, every angle is completely different. It isn’t just a shape with light, it’s completely different. When on, it plays with the shadows and light and gives just the right balance.


Artemide


(Pirce)


David Village: Your latest new designs for Artemide are Pan and Babilonia. Pan is much more traditional than the designs we are used to seeing from you. What is the reason for this?


Giuseppe Scutella: Three years ago I stayed in London with my family and we all went to the library where we saw these beautiful green desk lamps. First I thought what a great light, but then with all the latest technology, it is a light which today shouldn’t exist. My idea was to change this design updating and improving it for today, but with respect. I wanted to keep the green colour being soft and best for the eye. This is how pan was created.


Artemide


(Pan)


David Village: Babilonia is contemporary on the verge of futuristic. Can you tell us your idea behind this design?


Giuseppe Scutella: Babilonia uses the power from the led like waves from a central point in space. The waves are lit with light crystallising on their surface and when off completely invisible. I thought of a wave of light that propagates in space, starting from a central core.


Artemide


(Babilonia)


David Village: Thank you for this fascinating interview. We look forward to seeing and understanding all your designs in the future.


Giuseppe Scutella: It’s a pleasure.

Light Years


Product focus – Light Years Caravaggio Collection


The Iconic Caravaggio range by Light Years first began in 2005 with the release of the high gloss lacquer pendant. The Caravaggio collection is by Danish designer Cecilie Manz who studied at the Danish School of Design.


Light Years


Manz wanted to create a light which had a recognisable shape and a modern expression. The simple pendant design consist of a metal shade, a chrome plated suspension and a textile cable adding the finishing touch. The Caravaggio pendant casts out a downwards light, illuminating both the suspension and the cable through the hole at the top of the light.


Light Years


Later in 2008 Light Years released the Caravaggio floor, table and Opal versions. The Opal series combines the original award winning design with a diffused ambient light from its hand-blown opal glass shade.


The Caravaggio table and floor again has kept the same characteristics from the pendant but include a flexible tube which is hidden by the shade enabling it to tilt up to 40 degrees.


Light Years


In 2011 the family welcomed a Matt lacquer finish. The metal shade remains with the chrome plated details and the textile cable.


The classic collection compliments any room in the home with the pendants being perfection for over a kitchen island.
