CTO Lighting - Artes pendant light

Light glows through long alabaster blocks

British brand CTO Lighting has suspended long, thick blocks of glowing alabaster from satin brass stems in its latest pendant light.

The Artes pendant features white stone blocks that have a smooth ground finish with some pitting; when you turn the dimmable light on, the glow emanates through the stone and you can see its shadowy blemishes. The blocks are partially encased in brass and bronze, an opulent combination of materials that hangs weightily from the slender rod.

The pendant block comes in three different sizes, all at the same suspension height, and there are wall and floor versions too.
