For all New York City enthusiasts, Soho is presented as a statement. For all who attended ICFF this year, the Soho Suspension Lamp by Joan Gaspar for Marset had the same dramatic effect when rounding the aisles dedicated to Spain.

Indoor or Outdoor Versions of the Soho Suspension Lamp by Joan Gaspar for Marset Create Ambiance
“In recognition of the merits of the lamps traditionally used in markets, taverns and cafeterias,” the product description reads, the Soho Suspension Lamp hangs with conviction. Hard not to notice it’s prominence among the other designs nearby, its gaping center creates the kind of illumination that can tackle an entire room. In its 112cm diameter model, the Soho is designed to just that. But if adding it as a dining table chandelier replacement, the 57cm model produces enough light to create the ambiance desired.
Soho is made using a rotary-moulded polyethylene, making it large sizes possible. Within the surface of its massive shade, it uses a high-performance perspex diffuser to produce the even light quality. Since With a diameter of 112 cm, it has been conceived for large spaces, while the 57cm model is ideal for lighting a dining table - both are available in outdoor models as well, good for porches, garden dining, and terraces.
Completing the enthusiasm we feel for Soho in general, a high-performance perspex diffuser produces a light quality in two different glows. In the translucent white, the entire shade emits light whereas the deep brown shade emits straight light from underneath.
