A striking pendant with a beautifully delicate, light expression, Uchiyama presented a design idea to Louis Poulsen which deconstructed the traditional chandelier concept into slim layers of concentric circles. Enigma, which stands for 'mystery', refers to how the slender shades appear to hover and float when viewed illuminated from a distance. A unique light source and highly decorative hanging feature, the contemporary pendant light creates a serene visual and atmospheric effect as it shapes and channels glare-free downward light. The Enigma is available in a range of sizes and two sleek metal finishes; a stunning addition to the modern home which is perfect for hanging high in a hallway or low over a dining or coffee table.
