Either/Or Pendant

Stockholm Furniture Fair, Sweden
2019 - 2020

Inspired by the poetic tactility of Kusari-doi (鎖樋) - the ornate linked chains used to spout rainwater from the eaves of Japanese temples - the Either/Or Pendant elicits an ethereal beauty with soft ambient lighting akin to rainwater glittering as it washes down a delicate chain. 

“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates.”   

Jun'ichirō Tanizak, In Praise of Shadows

Gentle Light 

Whether used above the dining table or in the study, E/O pendant offers a warm, familiar ambiance and directed light with a clear yet gentle definition. With no visible light source to distract the eye, it allows its owner to fully enjoy the benefits of light.

Customisable freeform constellation

An assembly of precisely engineered steel frames connected by articulated flexible joints and fine-spun gold chains, the modular pendant system is readily customizable in vertical, horizontal or curved configurations to adjust to various designs and environments.
