Why We Love PENTA Light Lighting

Care and attention to detail are at the forefront of the design process with Penta products. Only high-quality materials are put to use, such as handblown glass and thermoplastic. Every product is made with a clean, minimalist aesthetic to help complement the typical modern home, while standard shapes and dimensions are molded into entirely unique structures to subvert common design tropes. The versatility of their collections cannot be understated, offering elegant, yet functional lighting for hotels, restaurants, ships, and other public locations in addition to residential settings.
