We start off with pendants that seem to effortlessly combine the inherent minimalism of industrial style with a cool vintage appeal – . These stripped-down lighting fixtures are fast becoming a staple in restaurants coffee houses and eateries that wish to combine their rich past with a relaxing modern ambience.
The lovely lighting fixture blends a touch of rustic beauty with unabashed contemporary aesthetics to offer the best of both worlds. Made from a metal wire frame and ultra-thin suspension wire the leaves of the Heracleum can be rotated easily to achieve a range of varied configurations. Add to this the energy-saving magic of LED lights and you have a winner in every sense of the word.
The Cloche lamp by young Norwegian designer Lars Beller Fjetland exudes grace control and charm as profiled in its striking 1930s industrial-esque form. Produced by Wrong for Hay the poetic design of the Cloche explores beauty weight and balance through an off-set cast-iron base black powder-coated stem and shade (in matte white matte black or polished copper).
What’s new in the realm of pendant lighting materials? Apparently plants! The Frida Pendant Light and Diego Pendant Light from CB2 bring a home thanks to the use of dyed and braided tropical palm. In fact these pieces are made by skilled artisans living in Southern Mexico.
