The Helios Pendant

The Helios Pendant by Manel Ybargüengoitia is an organic interplay of hard edges and circular softness, the paradox bringing the fixture a high level of panache. Made of eighteen panels of clear-varnished wood or matte gray aluminum, it has a radiant core composed of seven sockets—the brightness radiating through the warmth of the wood or the briskness of the aluminum to make it the quintessential ultra-modern chandelier. The canopy on both versions of the B.lux fixture is matt gray aluminum and the cord on both versions is black.

He’s a popular lecturer throughout Spain and an organizing member of the ECIA jury.
