Though the Discoco light
is a contemporary look, it certainly has a lot of retro style. The shape is reminiscent of the Louis Poulsen PH pendants from the fifties, while the use of the discs suggests some 1960s influence. The 35 discs are opaque so the light is directed past them to dramatic effect, as demonstrated in the image above.
This light is designed by Christophe Mathieu and comes as either a 55cm or, far more impressive 88cm model. The size difference is reflected in the price, with the smaller version costing £495 compared to £945 for the larger light.
