As Seen in Elle Décor October 2013
Sure, there’s the globe-like shades in White Etched glass, and the staggered heights of the 3 or 5 light cluster—but what takes the Demi Oval Grand Multi Light up a notch is the pop of color from the braided red suspension cord. It’s a subtle pop of color that’s just the right amount of playful for this modern silhouette. Designed by Robert Sonneman, whose modern lighting designs are inspired and driven by a fascination with architecture and design.
The Sonneman lighting sensibility is clean and contemporary, yet with a big nod to design traditions past. The sleek, functionalist designs that made Robert Sonneman famous in the 1960s and '70s remain just as relevant today and continue to influence his work. As such, Sonneman combines classic elements--vintage bulbs, mid-century modern angles--with cutting-edge forms and technologies in his current line of contemporary lighting. This delicious blend of old and new makes each Sonneman fixture at once exciting and versatile in any number of settings, transitional and contemporary.
