bloown pendant light
The bloown pendant light is a glittering beacon of unlikely origin: reclaimed rooftop tiles, CDs, and chocolate moulds. In a merging of machine and hand, playful synthetic extrusions conjure blown glass and soft-serve ice cream.
Optimized for the diffusion and refraction of light, the vortex design undulates like running water. Dirk Vander Kooij commonly affixes familiar sensations to mechanical processes, generating a balance between the functional and the fantastical.
The recycled plastic shell is suspended from durable steel fixture and illuminated by a single 4.2 Watt LED bulb. By way of a trailing edge, the bloown pendant light dims from cool and bright to a sleepy warm glow.
