Photographer: Iwan Baan

For the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, we have attempted to design a structure that embodies multiple aspects that are often perceived as opposites: a structure that is free­form yet rigorous, modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both box and blob. We decided to work with one of the most basic elements of architecture: the brick wall.

Discocó pendant: beautiful even when off turned off

Today, the Discocó has become an icon of modern lighting. Its unique look catches the eye just as its unique design catches and reflects the light, carefully controlling your room’s illumination. As its designer Christophe Mathieu states, “the results are a pleasant illumination that has a fresh and soft look, and, best of all, there’s no glare.”
Discocó is available in five sizes and four finishes options, so there’s a Discocó for every space. Produced by Marset, it’s also offered as a wall sconce and a ceiling light.
