Sola sits alongside the Pola pendant and both offer a distinct aesthetic based on the forces of nature.
Designed as part of our Icarus installation shown in Milan, which is based on the Greek myth about the boy who flew too close to the Sun. Sola represents the Sun which will get too hot if you fly too high and the shapes look a little like the solar flares that form and curl on the surface and edge of our Sun. The full installation was later purchased by the Pompidou Center in Paris for its permanent collection.
If you use a clear light bulb the Sola shade throws spectacular lattice patterns on to the walls of your space, a frosted bulb reduces this effect. Part of the Seed System range of kit set light shades cut from sustainably grown bamboo plywood.
