Planetary Pendant Light
05. Lighting Finalist
All project descriptions are provided by SBID Awards entrants.
Designed for a neoclassical style workplace in the City of London, the Planetary Pendant Light is an exploration of artisanal glass techniques and geometric forms.
Inspired by the subtle hues and contours of the planets, the pendant comprises three hand-formed glass discs crafted by a highly skilled glassblower. Each of the glass tiers is unique in its intricate detail due to the nature of the hand-spun process, as pigment is dropped into the glass to produce a distinctive swirling effect. The centre of each glass element houses a ring of side emitting diffused LED, which emanates light outwards and accentuates the cloudy texture of the glass. The circular glass discs have been affixed to two metal orbs and a static drop rod, finished in polished brass.
The result is a beautifully understated piece distinguishable for its elegantly balanced proportions and cloudy diffused glow.
