Part of the Danish design boom of the 1960s, this pendant from Lightyears was originally created for Fog & Morup 50 years ago. Consisting of a copper body and a rosewood top, the fixture is crowned with 24 slits for light permeation. The 370mm-tall pendant comes in diameters of 225mm and 340mm. Both use a 75W E27 lamp and will be available this August. lightyears.dk
