Pallas Pendant Story
The vertical lasercut slits in the shade creates openings for the light and creates a sophisticated interplay of light and shadow. The horizontal layers gives the pendant a noble and classic touch. Pallas has a remarkable airiness created by the light openings of the pendant. Another positive contribution is the decorative effect of light and shadow Pallas casts upon walls and ceiling.
Pallas is manufactured of lasercut sheet metal lacquered with a smooth black or white high-gloss lacquer finish. As Pallas is made-to-order it is also possible to define the colour. This modern large room pendant is produced in Denmark and delivered four weeks after ordering.
Brand & Designer
Lightyears takes pride in creating luminous lighting products that combine tradition and renewal. The core ambition of their collection lies in the fusion of the young and the established. They love the curiosity and boldness of the up-and-coming generation, and they respect the skill and the trained eye of the experienced designers.
Their collection offers modern interpretations of everyday lighting products, and they hope that their collection can shed light on new takes on how and where to use contemporary illumination. This season Lightyears proudly present three new lamps created by some of Europe’s most renowned and talented designers. They hope you’ll love them as much as they do.
Lightyears does not put just any lamp into production. The most important requirement is a fusion of form and function, and that the lamp provides optimum illumination. Every single detail must have its own purpose, and not exist purely for the sake of design.
The combination of progressive and timeless aesthetics is the golden thread that runs through all of our product series, tangibly expressed through functional design and refined lighting technology. Thus, their product assortment presents a new and pioneering order of modern design and quality illumination. In this sense, they know that their name brings obligation. But it also proves their commitment to being light years ahead!
All the production is handmade by experienced craftsman.
In 2006 Fabian Baumann and Sönke Hoof founded the Berlin-based design studio Formfjord. Fabian is an engineer with a designer’s heart and Sönke is a designer with an engineer’s mind. Together, they strive to create products that function – technologically, economically and emotionally.
Switching back and forth between drawing, model-making and CAD modeling is the essential to Formfjord. It enables them to find creative and innovative solutions and to test them in an early state. In their design work for Lightyears, they have focused on the interplay of light and shadow, as this is critical for the definition of form and space. Shadow yields contrast, obviously, and this makes light functional.
