Superb transformation of non/illumination – Pharaoh by Lightyears
Lightyears are launching Pharaoh at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, which starts today (5-9 February 2013).
In addition to a precise, harmonious shape, Pharaoh is impressive in its unusual and spectacular form. When the lamp is switched off, the shade appears to be mirror-like, reflective and robust. And yet, the moment the lamp is switched on, the shade takes on a metallic transparency, thereby making the light source visible.
The pendant has been developed in collaboration with the English design company, Hulger, which produces the Plumen light sources, which plays a pivotal role in Pharaoh’s design.
With their product design, Hulger is keen to help us cherish and even celebrate light once more, in the way the old rulers were once celebrated. This is why Hulger has selected a product name centring on “Monarchs and Rulers”, to encourage the celebration of light.
According to Hulger, light should be cherished and beautifully presented. Plumen, the world’s first designer energy-saving light bulb, is a light source capable of achieving this.
— Lightyears is progressive Danish brand that creates luminous lighting products, combining tradition and renewal. They tend to shed light on new takes on how and where to use contemporary illumination.
