VDF products fair: this simple glass pendant light by TAF Studio for Muuto is inspired by the shape of acorns.
The Rime Pendant Lamp is a contemporary take on the traditional glass pendant, featuring a mouth-blown shade semi-transparent glass with a sandblasted finish.
“Designing simple things is often one of the hardest things to do,” said TAF, a Stockholm architecture and design studio founded by Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom.
“We wanted to create a simple lamp with a glass shape, giving it a soft expression while making its top and pendant tube as subtle as possible.”
The powder-coated aluminium cap, the PVC cord and the ceiling fixing come in matching colours and are available in grey, white, black and orange.
The light comes in four different sizes and can be hung alone or in clusters. The shape of the white-glass shade is based on the fruit of the oak tree, the designers said.
“We were inspired by the shape of acorns for the gentle lines of the pendant while hinting towards the shaded expression of ice and rime for the glass of the design, allowing for the light to shine slightly through with a refined touch,” TAF said.
“The Rime Pendant Lamp brings a timeless yet modern perspective to the archetypal light through its translucent shade and graphic form.”
