Long a familiar sight in homes, schools and offices, this pendant is an enduring piece of Danish design history. Originally conceived in 1951 by Axel Wedel Madsen as a necessary light for workspaces, the large W4 along with other variations has been relaunched by Denmark brand Made By Hand. Produced by skilled craftsmen, the aluminum shade has a notable thickness without overbearing heft. A truly versatile player, W4 comes in a range of luscious colors as well as matte and solid tones of black, white or grey. Or choose a metallic look in silvery lacquered aluminum or a copper version with a reflective white interior.
