Ceiling/Pendant

Coral Pendant

These pendants are not only lovely, but also created from sustainable materials.

“The Coral Pendant (2004) is the result of two influences: the repeating patterns of ice crystals David Trubridge saw in Antarctica and the similar patterns he saw in underwater coral…The Coral Pendant arrives unassembled to make shipping more efficient and to reduce the amount of packing materials. Instructions for simple assembly are included and no tools are required.”

Australian sustainable-plantation-grown hoop pine untreated plywood; dual-core electrical flex PVC cord; white painted metal ceiling plate; stainless steel rivets.

H 23.5″ Diameter 23.5″ Cord L 15′

Series 21 One Pendant Canopy by Bocci

Of course multiples look spectacular, but it would require more of investment than just one. I love the sculptural, almost-paper-bag look to it.

“the series 21 fixture by omer arbel is a porcelain and borosilicate glass fixture suspended by metal cable to a brushed nickel canopy. inspired by the sporadic arrangement of barnacles on a a substrate in nature, the porcelain is wrapped around glass cones of different sizes, resulting in a unique appearance to each fixture.”

standard cable length is 10′. Now taking advance orders (shipping December 2007).[posted by katie]
