the ‘io jupiter i’ 

austrian designer burghard scherz of laminote has created the ‘io jupiter i’ pendant light. constructed from aluminum and cast resin, the circular form allows for directed light downward to a specific surface while casting an ambient fill light throughout the room with it’s semi-opaque outer ring.

technically powered by a G9 high voltage halogen and optional LED light, it is philosophically powered by being named after jupiter’s moon io.
