Lightyears introduces new pendant designed by Kasper Salto & Thomas Sigsgaard - JUICY
The basis for creating the first pendant for Lightyears was very concrete: To design the optimum, energy-friendly pendant for the dining table, which provides the table with concentrated, non-dazzling light. The pendant must take up as little space as possible, and the shape must be experienced as being “flat”.
Salto & Sigsgaard’s answer to the challenge is the pendant Juicy.
The design is logical, simple and functional. The various parts of the lamp; the wire, cone and shade come together seamlessly which makes the pendant seem like an organic whole. The light is warm and concentrated, but never dazzles the beholder, regardless of the angle from which you view it.
Juicy’s glossy surface is broken elegantly by a shining ring, which partly emphasises the part where the lamp is separated for change of light source, and partly emits a discrete light which elegantly illuminates the surface of the pendant. In strong daylight can often be difficult to see whether a lamp is on or off. The shining ring helps determine that.
Towards the bottom Juicy is finished off with a honeycomb-filter, which effectively concentrates the light while preventing daz- zling at the same time. It softens the light and contributes to the experience of a warm and friendly light – regardless of whether you use traditional low-energy light sources or the latest LED alternatives with a regular E27 socket. Juicy has a diameter of 43.5 cm and is available in black and white.
