Hand-folded sculptural pendant shades were designed by architect Poul Christiansen between 1969 and 1978 and have been in continuous production by the Danish company Le Klint. The material is a color-stabilized white PVC.
With a 35.4 inch diameter, Kartell's Neutra is best suited to a room with some serious square footage. The polycarbonate frame is available in black or white.
The slightly askew bulb laid bare gives Miconos its visual interest, casting light directly from the incandescent through the transparent glass shade.
Designer Jeremy Pyles appreciates the transparency of a blown-glass shade, which allows the filament bulb a chance to shine. Pharos emits a warm glow despite its cool, clear exterior.
