The Alouette Pendant lamp by Miles Keller is spaceship-inspired with a collapsible multi-pieced frame that is easy to assemble. The piece's design is based on Canada's first unique 1962 satellite, Alouette. The design for the light symbolizes Canada's entry into the digital age.
The lamp's structure is visually striking with the shade's inner light resembling a golden glow. The structure's outer shell features open and closed elements that allow for this beautiful lighting effect. The designers manipulation of light allows for interesting modulations that play with the power of shadow and reflection.
The lamp is sold in flat packs and takes ten minutes to assemble. This dynamically designed lamp is both visually stunning and functional. A simple design makes for simple packaging, transportation and assembly while its delicate beauty makes it a perfect statement piece.
