Design by Cecilie Manz, 2005.
Creating a simple, soft design for small and large pendants was the main idea behind the Caravaggio series. The curves passed through a number of shapes during the design process, but the final version captures a feminine form.
The shade is made of drawn steel and coated with smooth, high-gloss paint. The suspension technology is masculine in construction, creating the right counterbalance to the shade’s feminine lines. The suspension assembly consists of curved steel rods and two pieces of turned brass with a matte chrome plating. The depth of the shade prevents glare, no matter how high the pendant is hung. Caravaggio also features an opening at the top, which casts light upwards and illuminates both the suspension and cord.
Black high-gloss finish comes with a red cord; white high-gloss finish comes with a dark grey cord. 118″ of field-cuttable cord is supplied with both pendant sizes.
