1 OUT OF THIS WORLD

Late last year, Bocci in­tro­duced 13 new colours for 28, a se­ries of mas­ter­fully mis­shapen hand-blown orbs.

The hues can be mixed to cre­ate oth­er­worldly dis­plays, such as this cloud for­ma­tion of 189 pen­dants re­cently hung in the brand’s Ber­lin show­room. bocci.ca

2 SMALL WON­DERS

Pa­trick Norguet’s Giò pen­dants for Artemide have flared shades that cast light in a fo­cused di­rec­tion, mak­ing them ideal over in­ti­mate ta­bles in a restau­rant. The cheery red, yel­low and blue con­trast with the graphic black and white for an im­pact­ful group­ing. artemide.com

3 GO­ING DARK

Tom Dixon has ap­plied a slick black coat­ing to his clas­sic Cop­per pen­dant, dou­bling down on its drama while trans­form­ing it into some­thing a lit­tle edgier. A sil­ver-lined in­te­rior adds just the right amount of con­trast. tomdixon.net

4 A PRETTY SIGHT

The gra­dated pastels of Dechem Stu­dio’s Phe­nom­ena pen­dants for Bomma were cre­ated by hand-blow­ing the pale­hued glass di­rectly into clear crys­tal. Capped with gold- or sil­ver-fin­ished me­tal tubes, the sim­ple shapes are pro­pelled to scene-steal­ing sta­tus. bomma.cz

5 SLIM DOWN

El­e­gantly ta­pered and now avail­able in matte black, Cascade by Mod­ern Forms can be sus­pended to a max­i­mum length of 305 cen­time­tres for use in atri­ums and lob­bies. Its flat-cap, cut­glass spot­light en­hances the stream­lined de­sign. mod­ern­forms.com
