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.
