Metaphorically Inspired Pendant Lights

The Bilanciato Pendants by J Schatz are Inspired by Life

— October 3, 2022 — Art & Design
The Bilanciato Pendants have been designed by J Schatz as a series of metaphorically inspired illuminators for the modern home or office. The lights are constructed with a hoop and have the illuminator unit sitting right on top, which creates a visual sense of balance. This metaphorically refers to the experience of balancing ones various life commitments and responsibilities for an artistic rendering of daily challenges.

The Bilanciato Pendants maintain a cheery disposition thanks to their chromatic design and are equipped with warm white LEDs that are also dimmable. The lights maintain a high-gloss finish to reflect the LED light slightly, while also reflecting other light sources in the room. The light fixture conveys a sense of harmony and peace to reinforce a sense of cheeriness during ones day-to-day schedule.
