The Keglen pendant family was designed for the Tirpitz Museum, an elegant building designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels, set in the dune landscape of the west coast of Jutland, in Denmark.
The members of the Danish design firm BIG Ideas – led by Bjarke Ingels and Jakob Lange – wanted to create a family of pendant lights whose members shared a strong visual identity while offering as wide a range of uses as possible.
The pendants distinctive conical shades each have a built-in curved opal insert. This ensures a both attractive and glare-free downward light. Each version of the shade provides its own diffusion of light while the white inner side ensures that its light is reflected flawlessly. A gentle light is also emitted upwards through a uniform, discreet opening in the top of the shades which adds to the perfect ambiance.
Light source The lamp is fitted with an integrated energy-saving LED light source. Can be dimmed with phase dimming using standard dimmers with either leading edge or trailing edge technology.

When designing Keglen, the goal was to create a systematic stylistic expression compatible with a wide range of lighting typologies. In other words, Bjarke Ingels, Jakob Lange and the design team at BIG Ideas wanted to create a family of lamps with the same design qualities and expression, but each with its own personality.
