The Maria Pendant Lamp Provides Gentle Light Behind a Soft Lampshade

Some ambient illumination is ideal for the home, given that glaring rays aren't generally conducive to comfort. The Maria pendant lamp presents itself with a softness for two senses, for the eyes as well as the skin.

Arro Studio of France begins with a stack of felt strips, stitching them together into the flaring form of a lampshade. It has many spines that mark the meeting of the bands, pointed outwards as if the sewing was done inside-out. This effect gives the piece added dimension and detail to complement the texture of the fibrous material.

Fiberglass reinforces the drum of the hanging light and a PMMA plastic disk functions as a diffuser for the brilliant bulb. Manufactured by Dix Heures Dix, the Maria pendant lamp comes in gray and an orangey-red.
