The Pao collection of lamps is an exciting collaboration with established Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Named after the soft, glowing shape of traditional Mongolian Pao tents illuminated at night-time, Fukasawa set out to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness in the Pao Steel Pendant. Pao draws on Fukasawa’s aesthetic of beautiful simplicity; creating an everyday object that draws on design values existing in the natural world. By keeping the aesthetics modest and simple, he brings the design into harmony with its environment, reinforcing his primary intention of making the atmosphere pleasant and comfortable. Thanks to developments in the latest LED-bulb technology, the light source can be concealed from view within the shade, which is closed off with high-quality Acrylic (PMMA) diffuser, resulting in a clean and simple design with no visual intrusions. The pendant’s shades are crafted from steel with a high-gloss finish and are available in different sizes and colours. Their functionality and the deliberate simplicity of the design make them suitable for a wide range of spaces and uses in the domestic and corporate environments.
