Design Sleuth: Gas Light Pendants from Ize

Julie Carlson July 16, 2013

Spotted (and admired) in a kitchen remodel in West London by architects Feilden Fowles; a pair of deceptively simple GAS Light pendants from hardware purveyor Izé.

Designed by architect David Kohn (winner of the Young Architect of the Year Award in 2009), the “GAS lights series was inspired by the historic gas powered street lamps,” according to Izé. “The frosting on the glass bell obscures the light source so that the glow gives a mysterious ethereal hue. It becomes something pleasurable and playful much like the flame from a candle.”
