Fukasawa set out to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness of the tents in his Pao Glass Pendant design. Defined by a soft, curvaceous opal glass shade, containing a custom LED light source and diffuser, the design provides a functional output of light, whilst still enabling a warm, homely glow. A simple, elegant design suitable for an array of styled spaces, the pendant light can adapt with an interior space for years to come. Part of the HAY Pao collection.
