Suspended lamps are typically installed directly from the ceiling, but not the Daikanyama Pendant Lamp. Designer Thomas Bernstrand was inspired by the Japanese matsuri lanterns that decorate the streets of the Toyko neighborhood that named this product.

Instead of strings that hold up lightweight paper illuminators, the very wires that give these fixtures electricity are what keep them hanging over your head. They can be strung up in straight lines or complex crisscrossing arrangement. Both methods create a festive and cheerful display.

The conical shape and the bright colors of the hanging lights reference the source of their design in a way that suits practical and contemporary interior taste. Sold by Zero Lighting and made in aluminum, the Daikanyama Pendant Lamp comes in yellow, red, black and white.
