Calabash is a series of pendant lights from Danish lighting company Fritz Hansen, designed by Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen (collectively Komplot Design). The world of mother nature was the inspiration behind the design and here the harmonious and simple form of a pumpkin or squash has been used to create the series of Calabash lights. The inspiration for the finish comes from Anish Kapoor's 'Cloud Gate' sculpture on display in Chicagos' Millennium Park since 2004.

Using authentic craftsmanship from start to finish the organic design and slightly changeable surface provides Calabash with its own unique expression. Made from drawn aluminium the chromed finish is complemented with a black, woven textile cord this provides a sharp contrast to the lively chromed surface, which is available in gold and silver. Each light is fitted with a reflector to increase the down light - a warm and dazzle free illumination which is suitable for energy saving bulbs.

In any environment, used singularly or clustered, Calabash is a stunning addition.

PLEASE NOTE: Calabash is a handcrafted item, created under the same conditions as hand blown glass and handmade ceramics. The aluminium shade, carefully shaped, is subjected to a comprehensive four step lacquering process all exclusively carried out by hand. Therefore its surface is slightly changeable and cannot be compared with chrome plating which delivers a completely uniform finish. Each Calabash shade differs from the next with small visible variations and areas of slight colour saturation, which may occur, a testament to the skilled craftsperson whose care and attention form part of its unique charm.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
