The Lightframe by Herr Mandel is Both Sharp and Raw

The Lightframe by Herr Mandel, a German industrial designer, is at once sharp and raw. The sharpness of the pendant lights owes itself to the geometric angles of the shades while the rawness is due in large part to the wooden material. Although far from rustic, it hints at a rugged nature thanks to its masculine undertones, which will nevertheless appeal to both men and women.

Showcasing rather than hiding the light bulbs, the Lightframe by Herr Mandel is like the equivalent of a picture in a frame, hence its name. Nevertheless, the triangular form of the frame adds a more dynamic aesthetic that will grab people's attention more quickly.

The Lightframe by Herr Mandel is available in either untreated oak or oiled mahogany for two different finishes.
