Pipe is a truly flexible pendant light and was designed by world renowned architect Herzog & de Meuron (Tate Modern, Birds Nest Stadium in Beijing) for Artemide. Made from a single tubular steel structure, the stem is wrapped in an anti-yellowing silicone case providing a uniform finish. The magnificent diffuser incorporates a large transparent lens and an internal aluminium reflector which radiates a babbled light effect visible around its parameter once illuminated. This is possible via the random mirco-perforations located across its surface. Collectively these materials improve the quality of the light emitted as well as enriching the whole of the design.
Pipe'spainted polycarbonate ceiling rose and diffuser is finished in a transparent rubber effect to complement the stem.
