Prefer the look and lighting effect of a pendant but lack the hardwiring it requires? If you live in a rental apartment without the proper electrical source, a temporary space that’s too costly to wire, or a historical home where it’s impossible to create an opening in the wall or ceiling you may worry you’re out of luck.
Its deconstructed design is a delicate sculptural form that separates the LED light source from a series of shades to produce gradations of diffuse illumination. It appears to hover overhead like a bird in flight, its plug providing a grounded counterpoint to the feeling of weightlessness.
