HALO V Suspension Lamp
Manufacturer: Hive [design by hive]
Designer: Kenneth Cobonpue
Winner of the Australian House & Garden "Best of the Best" 2008 Style Award for decorative lighting.
HALO is a collection of lights designed by Kenneth Cobonpue for suspension and floor use. Hand woven translucent nylon strings on a light frame of wire give a soft, heavenly glow when lit.
This vertical disc suspension model is slightly larger than its floor version and floats ethereally on two cables and features an exposed bulb detail.
The weaving skills used are old fashioned and labour intensive, ensuring a high quality result as well as an interesting juxtaposition of old skills in a contemporary design.
The HALO has become an iconic luminaire and can be seen in the Sam Satay installation as well as Sydney Rowing Club and Castle Hill RSL as well as numerous residential and commercial developments.
