Designed by Patricia Urquiola, 2007
A stunning illusion from award-winning designer Patricia Urquiola, the Chasen pendant lamp enchants with an unexpected presentation of diffused light. The diffuser is borosilicate and the body is chemically photo-etched stainless steel, and it features liquid-paint protection. The lamp’s base is die-cast aluminum. The ceiling rose is 30% fiberglass-reinforced polyamide and is attached to a pressed and galvanized steel ceiling fixture.
In this version, the light emission can be adjusted via a mechanical movement that opens the louvers, shifting the shape of the lamp. There is a steel suspension cable, and a FEP/PVC power cord.
