The young and enthusiastic DCW company had the brilliant idea of relaunching the Here Comes the Sun Pendant, designed by Bertrand Balas in 1970.
This very particular and decorative pendant is available in four finishes: black/copper, white/copper, black/black, white/white.
In addition to the 4 formats originally proposed, DCW adds in 2017 the Here Comes the Sun Mini, with a diameter of 10 cm, which widens its field of use.

Bertrand Balas

Bertrand Balas is a French designer architect.
"In fact, I do not know what to say; I started my professional life in 1962 as a freelancer after a few months of training in a workshop in Paris to get back into the active life after thirty six months of military service, including a part in Algeria (it was the obligation of the time). I returned very quickly to Toulouse, supporting badly the life in this Paris which did not suit me for various reasons: the stress, the particular relations with the people, the superficiality of certain exchanges, the transports... I returned to my province with relief and pleasure. And I worked as an architect and decorator for residences of rich industrialists.

In 65, during a trip with a major distributor of lighting equipment, I came into contact with the company Raak, which was then very fundamental for the blossoming of my abilities as a designer, the director of this company having says that if we (we were two architects) had some project in this area he was quite a taker if it came into his company's mind. For 2, 3 years it matured in my mind and I started to sketch some projects. Anxiously I sent them – I who was a young person under thirty – to Mr. Lockhorn, the head of the company who, oh surprise has accepted one! Wouhaou! I then worked feverishly to develop a variety of objects, including "Here Comes the Sun", created in two diameters and three other models.

In total I had five published objects. Then my work as an architect took my time completely and I did not have the freedom of mind to create, to imagine shapes, volumes, colours and materials, and especially to be drifted in time, the extended time, without specific obligations, and try to formalize something that, like that, ends up appearing. Sometimes to its own surprise. Then a long time later – during my retirement I had directed my life towards other activities – I was awakened suddenly by a phone call from Frédéric Winkler. He was interested in what would become "Here Comes the Sun" and a sudden my career as a designer of objects of light was back on track. For my greatest happiness."
