Lamp fixtures have historically been shaped to encase different light sources, such as the light bulb, and to act as a reflector to direct the light. Because of the physical shape and size of the light source, the light fixture itself was of significant size. 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. The lamp that hangs from the ceiling, often above a table, creates a room within the room.
In 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, yet putting through a normal doorframe.
In addition to the quality of light, the feature of this lamp is its size. Paired with careful control of the ne details and the paper-like matt finishes, the lamp is almost illusory; dream-like – when experienced in reality.
