Glo-Ball Suspen­sion

c. 1998

by Jasper Morrison
for Flos

The Glo-Ball suspen­sion by Jasper Morri­son marries the func­tional with the other­worldly. Designed in 1998, this celes­tial design is calming yet versa­tile, and it punc­tu­ates any room it is featured in. The deli­cate glass globe diffuser of this contem­po­rary pendant light is made of exter­nally acid-etched, hand-blown, flashed opaline glass. The diffuser support is trans­par­ent PC. It features a 30% fiber­glass rein­forced injec­tion-molded polyamide rose and includes a pressed and galva­nized ceiling fitting, as well as a steel suspension cable.
