Ballet creates a stylish, calm atmosphere
Ballet is inspired by a ballet dancer’s tutu, which hangs in a beautiful curve from the waist down. But as is often the case with Poul Christiansen's designs, nature also plays a part: The design of the pendulum is taken from the beautiful parabolic-shaped curve that forms when a leaf is held horizontally at one end and left to hang freely at the other. Gravity and the stiffness of the material shape the leaf. A curved shape is formed, created by nature. The curve inspired the arrangement of leaves in a circle to create the parabolic shape.

Because the Ballet shade comes as a flat rosette, you’ll see yourself how the shape emerges when you hang the shade up. And the way the light shines through the Ballet shade is also rather special: The light from the LED light source is sent downwards, but the lamp gets a truly unique look because much of the light seeps out between the slats, and the light fades on the lamp’s exterior. A detail that creates a stylish, calm atmosphere and a beautiful eye-catching lamp.
