Today, thanks to new technology, the almost zero- sized light sources do no longer limit the size and shape of the light fixture. Consequently, minimising has become the design norm.
However, with pendants in particular, the light fixture has always played an additional role. Apart from providing light - it shapes the room.
With the w151 extra large pendant, we are bringing back the room-shaping quality - not with one lamp, but three. Based on the most basic of geometrical shapes - the cone - the lamp comes in three variations: the tall and narrow, the archetypical and the low and wide. All three are super-sized, pushing the limits of manufactured spun aluminium.
In addition to the quality of light, the feature of this lamp is its size. Paired with careful control of the fine details and the paper-like matt finishes, the lamp is almost illusory; dream-like - when experienced in reality.
Using LEDs to direct the light directly downwards, the shade is not used as a reflector. This gives the opportunity to paint the inside of the shade in the same colour as the outside, without destroying the quality of the light. The result is a beautiful and, at the same time, playful effect, as a small amount of light lights up the coloured inside of the shade.
