While some people might think that the Samba Pendant Light has simply been warped in the manufacturing process, it is actually inspired by movement. In particular, its shape is modeled after dancing hips, as seen in Samba performances, hence its name. When looked at closer, the personality of these energetic dancers can be perceived in the curves and lines of the Samba Pendant Light.

Created by Australian designer Brad Stebbing for Hive, a furniture manufacturer based in Cebu, Philippines, the Samba Pendant Light will bring life to any living space. Available in various colors including blue, yellow and white, it is fashioned out of rattan, a sustainable material. Although this bamboo material isn't perceivable from the outside due to the shiny lacquered surface, the coils can be seen from the inside.
