A stunning fixture made from an alabaster core. When lit, the alabaster provides a beautifully diffused light and displays a fascinating marbled texture. This Alabaster core is presented in a fumed glass sphere, which creates a unique atmosphere in the room.

As a refined detail, the fixture is equipped with two leather straps running along the sphere, resulting in a classy unit. A complete family of fixtures. Both suspended, as a floor lamp and table lamp. Combined in some cases with an up- or down-light LED.

The pendant version features a downward spotlight, unlike the standing lamp, which is provided with an upward spotlight. Definitely a mood maker in the room and a classic in the make!
