The Daily Lamp – Hulger’s Pharaoh Pendant Series for Lightyears

pharaoh-designed-by-Hulger

Today’s Daily Lamp is a very elegant design by Hulger for the Danish lighting company Lightyears — from the Lightyears website:

Pharaoh is a unique pendant light created for the beautifully designed and eye-catching Plumen 001 light source. Pharaoh’s aim has been to gently frame and enhance the expression of the Plumen light source, preventing glare, and ensure optimum luminous efficiency.

In addition to a precise, harmonious shape, Pharaoh is impressive in its unusual and spectacular form. When the lamp is switched off, the shade appears to be mirror-like, reflective and robust. And yet, the moment the lamp is switched on, the shade takes on a metallic transparency, thereby making the light source visible. The transformation between illuminated and non-illuminated is truly remarkable with Pharaoh really optimising this unique light source.

In stores from May 2013

The really twisty light source you see in there is called Plumen – the designer CFL. This thing is also pretty cool, check it out:

This is a really sleek, elegant pendant!  I likie!  This is Hulger’s first commission for Lightyears, and I hope the next ones are as awesome as Pharaoh!
