Japanese rice paper lanterns were the inspiration behind Louis Weisdorf's renowned 1965 pendant made of a dozen spiraling slats that form a flower-like globe to shield the light source. Weisdorf's passion for multiple repeating elements gives his simple sphere a complex structure that lends an airy sculptural quality. Fashioned in powder-coated aluminum in crisp matte white, and available in 2 sizes with both a matching canopy and a ceiling-hook mount included.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
