For us at Troy, 2017 saw a number of innovative interior products—complex and contemporary designs like Network, multidimensional iron centerpieces like Impression and adjustable rise-and-fall selections like Alchemy. However, among these, Berlin stands out for its sophisticated geometric appeal and smooth functionality.
Berlin synthesizes modern contouring and industrial detailing into a pendant with commanding simplicity. An impressive piece of clear, blown glass encases its internal metalwork: a cone-shaped iron mesh screen that encloses an LED light source within a globe diffuser. The light operates with universal dimming switches. Made of handworked iron and finished in gun metal, the Berlin pendant is offered in three sizes.
More than a versatile and intriguing indoor pendant, Berlin has recently acquired accolades from architectural readers and interior design judges at Interiors + Sources and Architectural Record.
