Big, brazen, and a whole lot of pine, the Hans Pendant XL delivers a substantial dose of iconic design. After re-engineering Hans-Agne Jakobsson’s characteristic sixties lighting, Vaarnii understood that the designs innovative lightweight construction could be extended even further. The super-sized Hans Pendants uses the same concentric circles of veneer and sophisticated interior structure of solid Finnish pine as their smaller-sized siblings but tests the limits of lighting manufacture with their scale. More softly filtered light, more pine surface, more imposing, the 90 cm 1003 Hans Pendant XL brings maximum impact to interior spaces with its brutal scale and metres of finest pine veneer.
Made in Finland.
The Hans series of lighting is made in Finland using solid pine for internal structure and the finest pine veneer for exterior surfaces. As every light is handmade using a natural material, each object is subject to subtle variations in symmetry. Every Hans light is therefore unique.
Pine is an especially characterful wood. As a result of naturally occurring oils and resins, pine changes colour as it ages. Vaarnii uses both pine heartwood and pine sapwood. These two different types of wood mature at different speeds, resulting in a beautifully stripped surface. This exciting patterning is a temporary stage and should be enjoyed while it occurs. Your Vaarnii pine product will gradually even out to a rich honey tone over the course of several years.
The 1003 Hans Pendant XL is also available in original size of 60cm.
