Span­ish stu­dio Masques­pa­cio’s new ceil­ing fix­ture is a real looker

Wink Light

Ever get the feel­ing you’re be­ing watched? In the case of th­ese whim­si­cal, Span­ish-made pen­dant lights, don’t sweat it: The ef­fect is less Big Brother and more – as their name im­plies – play­ful wink. Shown ear­lier this year at Mai­son et Ob­jet in Paris, the ceil­ing fix­ture is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween cre­ative con­sul­tancy Masques­pa­cio and design brand Hou­tique, both of Va­len­cia. Ana Hernán­dez, cre­ative di­rec­tor at Masques­pa­cio, says it cel­e­brates the power of ob­ser­va­tion in the cre­ation of good design. She clearly has the eye of a (neo) sur­re­al­ist: The pink rayon fringe, sug­ges­tive of eye­lashes, is Dalí with a post­mod­ern twist. Mea­sur­ing 15 cen­time­tres long, it dan­gles from a stain­less-steel semi-cir­cle bathed in 18-karat gold and is de­tach­able for clean­ing. The thin black ca­ble on which the frame hangs, mean­while, is up to a me­tre long, mak­ing it easy to in­stall at vary­ing heights, ei­ther on its own or in a group. _DANNY SINOPOLI masques­pa­, hou­
