Cast is a large modular pendant lighting system made from fibreglass. Its name, material and fastening method takes inspiration from fibreglass casting moulds.
Designed by Philippe Malouin, Cast combines the depth and texture of fibre reinforced polymers, combined with a warm LED lightsource, to create a unique and inspirational feature lighting piece. Made in New Zealand, cast incorporates specially formulated “clean” resins to deliver advanced transparency and an optically superior visual experience.
Ideal for a range of commercial and domestic spaces, Cast is durable, lightweight and flexible.
