It sounds so kitchy to talk about a designer by a single name – Pablo Pardo, for example, being called “Pablo,” as if he’s the lighting designer formerly known as his real name. Regardless of his rockstar-designer status, his work is innovative, functional, and in great form. Pablo is among a small list of designers I’ve started to chronicle on Jim On Light – to spread the beauty of the relationship of form and fuction, especially with something as essential as illumination.
Enough of the ruminations on art for form and function – let’s look at the Ventana, by Pablo.
Ventana is a drapery-esque lighting fixture that has the ability to be raised and lowered, and has the ability to lie flat against the wall, or to be maneuvred perpendicular with the wall to which it is attached.
Ventana comes in a mini format (a little less wide than the original Ventana) and in the original length and width. Y Lighting has the Ventana lamp on “sale” for $560.00. No, I don’t have an affiliate membership at Y Lighting – it’s just an awesome lamp.
