Those boogie nights are back with the Scotch Club Pendant Light series, inspired by the timeless revolving disco ball. Instantly recognizable by its shape, the ceramic shade's 72 internal facets reflect light in all directions. Barcelona-based brand Marset teamed up with master ceramicist Xavier Mañosa from Barcelona and the Mashallah design studio in Berlin. Using a meticulous traditional design process, the lamps are fired several times with specifically developed glazes. Available with either brilliant white or gold enamel interiors for a glittery reflection, the collection's 3 sizes create spellbinding sculptures in air, played singly or grouped together.

“Marset is more than lamps: We take care of light in its different nuances and effects, to create atmospheres with character, helping to improve people’s quality of life,” declares the Barcelona-based company. Marset’s dual preoccupation with both crisp contemporary design and the more elusive ambiance of lighting has firmly fixed the firm on the design world’s cutting-edge radar. A series of attention-grabbing and innovative fixtures account for the recent revitalization of the brand, though Marset has actually been around since the 1940s.
A family business, Marset was originally a foundry, not a lighting company. It segued into lighting design when Francisco Marset formally established Marset Illuminacion in 1965. Decades devoted to metalwork easily translated to the contemporary lighting industry, with a dexterity of materials available to create unexpected, atmospheric lighting effects. Not to mention the influence of its Barcelona home, a city renowned for architecture, design and visual inspiration.
