TR5 Small Pendant

The TR5 Small Pendant

Waves of delicate strips of wood crest and fall as the apexes are folded one into the other, revealing slices of light as edge whispers to edge. The TR5 Small pendant in birch comes in a variety of finishes, including natural, white, red, brown and black. The fixture is also available in copper-brushed aluminum, gold-brushed aluminum and iron-brushed aluminum, and comes in a larger version—the TR5 Large. The TR in the name represents the initials of Danish designer Tom Rossau, who envisions and manufactures the beauties.Request a Quote

Any designer who lives by the motto “Dare to be naïve” is a force to be reckoned with. This is doubly true of Danish designer Tom Rossau, whose lighting fixtures Global Lighting is proud to distribute exclusively in North America. In Rossau’s opinion, it takes great strength to be naïve, and naivety should not be interpreted as stupidity or obstinate stubbornness but as the ability to believe in something beyond conforming to other people’s views. Taking this idea to its furthermost conclusion, he says it’s critical to not give up on an idea until it is completely decrypted. “The will to create something real, formed from an idea that has evolved and molded into his final view” is the point at which he knows he’s been successful.

His value of pure exploration is not a surprise given he came to the discipline of lighting design organically. In 1997 he opened a boutique in Copenhagen to sell his own leather clothing designs he’d perfected as a motorcycle enthusiast. Needing furniture and lighting for the shop, he decided to design them: “This is quite representative of my point of view in most areas of my life—if I can make it, I’d rather do so rather than buying it,” he explains. “Designing the lighting for the shop was quite satisfying so I kept at it—investigating new ideas and working one product at a time until I figured out how the materials behaved.”

Selling lighting products from his store became a more serious endeavor in 2006 when he exhibited at one of Europe’s major design fairs and found interested dealers who were eager to take him on. The self-described naïve little boy trapped within a 44-year-old body hopes the playfulness of his designs come through. He also wants the seriousness of his production team’s strive for quality to be obvious. Many of his fixtures carry the initials TR to represent his own, expressing his deep connection to his work. His Danish roots infuse these fixtures with the quintessential naturalness that seems to come to so effortlessly to him.
