Vertigo pendant is certainly the most iconic piece of the young French design éditor Petite Friture and best-selling. Its great size, lightness and elegance seduce the eye: just hang a Vertigo pendant in the ceiling and even a dull room becomes appealing. Constance Guisset says that the Vertigo pendant is a "refuge lamp" that creates a protective feeling of a space-in-the-space. Consisting of a lightweight fiberglass structure, tensioned by polyurethane ribbons, the Vertigo pendant takes life with the breath of air.
