Wästberg Taps Claesson Koivisto Rune to Design Three Supersize Pendants
New technologies have made for shrinking pendant fixtures. They no longer necessitate large bulbs or reflectors. But overscale rooms with tall ceilings still call for anchoring pieces. So, Wästberg tapped Claesson Koivisto Rune to fill the void. The firm’s W151 Extra Large series, now readily available in the U.S., includes three supersize pendants, their respective shapes being tall and narrow, low and wide, and somewhere in between. Lit by a dimmable LED, each conical shade is made of lightweight spun aluminum that has been powder-coated matte Jet Black, Traffic White, Red Orange, Carmine Red, or Purple Red, with the interior finished to match. Hang them together or individually.
