Fogia - Persimon lights

Note Design Studio creates fruit-like pendant light

Stockholm firm Note Design Studio has created a delicate pendant light that hangs like a piece of fruit for Swedish furniture brand Fogia.

The subtle contours of a persimmon fruit inspired the designers to create a rounded glass shade with flat sides and a plump base that pulls in at the top as if hanging from a stalk. There’s a black plate on top of the shade which the designers intended to look like a flower’s calyx, the cup-like structure that the fruit grows from.

The shades are very thin, inspired by the asian fruit’s delicate skin, and the light emits a soft glow through the white glass.

It comes in two sizes and there’s also a table lamp version that looks more like a pumpkin.
