Tall and wide pendant lights based on Moroccan earthenware
February 19th, 2013
The word ‘tajine’ conjures mouthwatering memories of Moroccan stews – slow-cooked and succulent. Tajine is the name of the iconic clay pot in which these stews are cooked, and it is after this traditional earthenware that Aëon Illumination have fashioned their newest lights.
Their lamp shade design reflects the distinctive domed or conical top of the tajine – designed to trap in heat and flavours. When this design is applied to Aëon’s pendant lights, it effects a hub of glowing warmth – the eye is drawn to it like a moth.
The standard colour range is black, white, yellow and orange – with custom colours available on request. The most fascinating effect is created by their options for dual colouring, for example, black shade with orange interior, or black shade with white interior.
When the dual colour options are played with, the Tajine pendant lights hang in the air like gentle Moroccan fireflies.
