Currently swooning over the Skygarden lamp by Marcel Wanders…
This design is new to me, but was actually designed by Marcel for Flos Architectural in 2007 and was inspired by the ceiling in his former home.
The exterior of the pendant light is a hemisphere of die-cast aluminum alloy – modern, minimal and sleek in appearance. In contrast, the interior of the light is filled with the intricate details reminiscent of an antique plaster ceiling, timeless and decorative!
It is a stunning design that uses the function of the light to highlight the plaster pattern, casting shadows that emphasise the detail in the garden design. I picture this light fitting in perfectly in a newly renovated Victorian home, it would be just the right mix of contemporary and heritage to complement that type of space.
The light is available in four exterior colours – Matt Gold, Matt Rusty Brown, Gloss White and Gloss Black.
Available in Australia through Euroluce Lighting.
