Dezeen Showroom: Swedish duo Broberg & Ridderstråle has designed a sculptural pendant for lighting brand Pholc that resembles a cocoon.

The Turner light is handmade in Italy and, according to the designers, “retains a pleasing quality of fragility and lightness akin to rice paper”.

“The sculptural quality and unique character of the material make Turner equally eye-pleasing when turned off,” Pholc told Dezeen.

To create the cocoon shape, the designers experimented with different wire constructions. The delicate cocoon material was then sprayed with polymer to strengthen the structure.

This same technique was used by designers in the 1940s, bringing an element of tradition to the Turner light.

“We’re always looking to the future,” says Pholc founder Maja Norburg. “Turner uses an established process to create an elegant new mood.”

According to Broberg & Ridderstråle, the resulting design can help to create a “warm, atmospheric” glow above dining tables and beds. 

The pendant is available in two sizes and can be hung on it own or combined into larger constellations.
