The Smithfield C ceiling-mounted light manages to be both grand and unassuming. It provides direct light through its aluminum body and is well suited for a variety of environments. The cylindrical industrial “pancake” diffuser form of the Smithfield ceiling lamp has been masterfully rendered by Jasper Morrison to reveal subtle curves at the top perimeter which are quite visually engaging within the large-scale context of the fixture itself. The diffuser is composed of aluminum that is available in three sophisticated enamel finishes – gloss black, white or mud gray. A simple opalescent polycarbonate disc fits within the underside of the diffuser; it takes a single 200 watt T‑3 RSC halogen bulb (included), a 2 x 36W PL 2G11 Fluorescent, or a 3 x 24W PL 2G11 Fluorescent (not included). The Smithfield lamp is affixed with a simple stainless-steel ceiling plate. For more in the Smithfield family, see the Smithfield S pendant light.
