representative of traditional galician architecture, AStudio has crafted ‘mika 350.’ the pendant lamp finds its origins in pallozas, ancient celtic forts from 6th century BC that were constructed with circular rock walls supporting a conical roof of straw. by converting this structure from a building into a lighting fixture, the design transforms into a wooden pendant holder suspending a thin covering of polished stone.

inside the luminaire, a gearwheel allows the dilatation of the metal to not break the enclosure while ventilating the heat from the bulb. each shade goes through two different machines with more than five hours of work, which are exclusively carried out by hand. this aesthetic generates two opposite notions due to the appearance of rigid, heavy granite with a slimness that suggests the fragility of glass. the device is available in four types of wood: oak, chestnut, sucupira, and afzelia.
