These pendant lamps designed by Achille Castiglioni for Flos in 1996 are discreet elegant and glistening like upside-down champagne glasses. The lower rims are sand blasted so the eye-catching effect of sparkle and transparency is achieved without glare.
The synthetic shade available in hot pink white and turquoise is wrapped around the light source and has a slight transparency which gives off indirect light effects through a very neat effect in addition to the actual lighting and the joyful appearance. A creation of Vicente Garcia Jiménez inspired from the Guggenheim Museum in New York Le Soleil exudes cosmopolitan taste and joie de vivre.
The refined touch is conveyed by the matte black lacquered exterior combined with the golden interior which reflects and enriches the light. Hung in a cluster for vivid asymmetry or in a regular series for a very graphical and hieroglyphic impact they are essential modern concise and visually very catchy with just a slight amount of eccentricity.
It is best to remember that no single type of lighting gets the job done in its entirety. Recessed lighting is often used as accent lighting. It cannot be the sole light source in most rooms. Mix recessed lights with floor lamps rail lighting and pendant lights to get the desired illumination.
