'Calabash' by Komplot for Lightyears
The Copenhagen based designer duo Komplot developed this pendant light made from spun aluminium with a reflective chrome finish for the Danish lighting manufacturer Lightyears. Inspired by the harmonic shape of the calabash pumpkin which has been used as bowls, water containers, musical instruments, etc. for centuries the designers created a contained but decorative little light which comes in two sizes and works well as a single piece or as a cloud of several.
