The Circle pendant can be accused of having an infinite appeal but we don’t think it would mind given it so confidently dangles its bulb! The simple graphic lines of its signature round shape were envisioned by designer Hannakaisa Pekkala, who created this minimalist design to break away from traditional chandeliers. This contemporary statement was a dexterous move for the Finnish designer given the fixture is seriously cool on its own but even cooler when placed in groupings at varying heights. The shadow the pendant throws even when it’s unlit makes it a reflection of its pared-down stylishness even when the lights are switched off and the sun is streaming in through a window. This product debuted during Stockholm Design Week in 2017.

There is a new generation of Finnish designers taking the global marketplace by storm and one of these is Hannakaisa Pekkala! Her exploration of the relationship between fine art and product design began when she was a student at the Institute of Design & Fine Arts in Lahti, Finland. Through this exploration, she developed a cross-disciplinary approach that shows her fascination for contrasts. Finding a way to juxtapose the stark landscapes of Northern Finland against the urban lifestyles found in cities around the world, she drives her designs to merge these two sensibilities.
Her passion for new materials and techniques has not trumped her strong advocacy of traditional craftsmanship, and she always saves room for spontaneity. In fact, this is one of her greatest strengths. While remaining true to the simplicity and functionality of her Scandinavian heritage, she finds ways to express something unexpected in her work. This is certainly the case with the Circle pendant for Northern Lighting, which is new to our Stratos Collection. We at Global Lighting look forward to seeing what other exciting products she envisions in the future!
