Subtle, organic forms and gentle diffuse light characterize the Stemlite Pendant – a new addition to the Stemlite Collection, a hidden gem from the space race era.
Legendary designer Bill Curry’s ‘total look’ lamp was an innovative rethinking of the traditional lamp and captured the zeitgeist of West Coast America of the 1960s. Combining new techniques, bold aesthetics and a pioneering approach to modular design, the original Stemlite floor and table lamps became an iconic symbol of this optimistic era.
The new pendant has been developed by simply flipping the original design upside-down. A simple, slender stem with hidden, stabilizing counterweights is available in Black Chrome, Red Black, and Pebble Gray. The gentle glow of the frosted glass globe creates an atmosphere which complements both modern and traditional interiors. The visual harmony of the entire Stemlite Collection means you can combine the Pendant, Floor and Table Lamps in any number of home, commercial and hospitality settings.
American designer Bill Curry (1927-1971) captured the zeitgeist of the 1960s and ‘70s with his iconic lamp designs. From his unique Los Angeles vantage point at the meeting point of art, design and engineering, during an era defined by the space race, pop culture and a new forward-looking optimism, he was recognized as one of California’s leading designers by the time he died at the age of just 43.
