Satelight’s new Aniseed pendant light sits in a cluster of angular timber blades which can be configured to produce a range of lighting effects
January 21st, 2013
The angular cluster of Satelight‘s new Aniseed pendant light is softened by its Tasmanian Oak veneer. Although the angles of the timber blades are clean and sharp, they can be configured to give a range of soft lighting effects.
The blades can be configured in three different ways. When their angles are arranged around the base, it gives the effect of a hanging oriental flower. When the blade angles are arranged around the top of the light, the effect is of a carven lantern.
The blades can also be arranged in any combination of these two configurations, so that all sorts of layered lighting effects are possible by playing with the Aniseed’s visual aspect. If you’d like to play with its form yourself, the Aniseed can come in a self assembly option. For commercial projects, it can be preassembled.
For those after a little more drama, Satelight suggest adding in a clear lamp amongst the Aniseed pendants. This will create all kinds of interesting shadow play.
