The Beam Pendant is our take on the classic typology of shop lamps. With the advent of new technology, fluorescent tubes have been replaced by thin strips of high efficiency LEDs. Using those arrays as our jumping off point, we explored linear manufacturing processes to arrive at our material palette of plywood, extruded aluminum and rolled acrylic. We join and shape these materials into a fixture with angled sides and rounded ends that imply movement and directionality, not simply an elongated rectangle, but a bold graphic line floating in space. The effect of each considered part combine to create the Beam Pendant, a refined linear fixture that casts an even, flattering glow.
