Designer Titanium Pendant Light, Pair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The celebrated titania pendant light designed by Paolo Rizzatto with Alberto Meda in 1989 is one of the icons of Italian design. This designer pendant light was inspired by the frame from an airplane wing. It's the ultimate in modern lighting. With an elliptical structure composed of blades that serve simultaneously as a bulb screen, a reflector and a heat dissipater. We were lucky to rescue two of these striking lamps when a large Manhattan design studio recently moved. They have an impressive 28" wingspan and measure 11" wide. The lamp moves up, down and can easily be tilted in any direction with the aid of a ball counterweight.
