vertigo.

I spied this pendant lamp in the interiors of beautiful spaces long before I managed to find out any more about it. I have now tracked it down, and it’s of French provenance: Vertigo by Constance Guisset. Reminiscent of a parasol, or a wide brimmed hat; it is incredibly light which means it becomes mobile when it catches a breeze, turning and floating. And casting the most wonderful, graphic shadows.

It comes in black, turquoise, copper, white and big and small: 2m diameter (500g weight) and 1.4m.

What do you think of Vertigo? Would you have one in your space?

    The light is striking and would make a great focal point however my eye was drawn to the concrete wall, wood staircase and glass bannister in the last picture. What a lovely combination :). xD

    That really is quite LOVELY , I do like the idea of it swaying or very slightly spinning round in the breeze sending shadows all over the place …
    OH and I very much want that chair with that funky fabric …

    What a unique piece. I love the way it fits into different styles of interiors – from mid-century modern to a stark minimalist interior. A lovely find. x
