Introducing the Veer Pendant
SkLO is excited to introduce a new-for-2020 lighting design, the VEER Pendant.
The VEER Pendant has a playful, sculptural quality about it. It is a pendant version of the VEER Light, a floor and table light that has been part of the SkLO:LIT lighting collection for years.
The VEER Pendant makes use of the same four-armed brass structure as on the VEER Light. Each of the four short arms ends in an individually lit handblown spherical glass diffuser. The short branching arms extend in different directions, combining asymmetry with a balanced form that reads differently from every angle.
The VEER Pendant is available with two different diameters of glass – 4.5″ (11cm) or 7″ (18cm). The glass is available in five different glass colors, including clear and opaque white. The brass hardware is available in two finishes, brushed brass and dark oxidized patina. The VEER Pendant is suspended on a rigid brass tube stem, which is custom cut to specification. Like all SkLO lights, VEER Pendants are built-to-order, which allows SkLO to offer many different color and finish options.
The glass spheres of the VEER Pendant feature a signature SkLO detail: a small, rippling mouth that shows where the glass was broken from the glassblower’s pipe while still hot and fire polished to a smooth finish. Details like this are careful yet intentionally uncontrollable expressions of the molten origins of the glass, of its handmade nature, and the Craft tradition from which it is derived.
Equally important as our handblown glass, the metalwork that goes into the hardware and componentry in our lighting is of the uncompromisingly best quality. These brass parts are bold and solid, making the relationship between the fragility of the glass and the strength of the brass a design philosophy unique to SkLO.
Modest and relatively compact compared to the many extravagant decorative fixtures on the market, the VEER Pendant is complex and sculptural enough to stand on its own. As a source of light, it is entirely functional. The VEER Pendant offers infinite possibilities for many interior spaces.
