Despite its strikingly pared down appearance, Lightyears' first ever chandelier design, Pallas by Berlin-based designers Formfjord, was inspired by the opulent, tiered form of historical chandelier designs.
With its substantial size, Pallas is made to illuminate grand architectural projects like lobbies, airports, theaters and museums.
Laser-cut from sheet metal lacquered with a smooth black or white high-gloss lacquer finish, Pallas' shade provides openings for the light to shine through, creating a sophisticated interplay of light and shadow. The design aims to make a focal point out of the shadows that it creates on the surrounding walls and floor as well as the actual lamp itself.
Measuring 750 mm in width and 760 mm in height, Pallas is designed to make an impact and works well hung in groups or as a stand alone piece. The design is made to order, so bespoke color options are available. Produced in Denmark, Pallas is delivered four weeks after ordering.
