TALISSE: Cloud-Like Porcelain Lamps for MODISS
View Slideshow

Designed by Hopf, Nordin for MODISS, the TALISSE line of lighting look like clouds about to release drops of rain. Now, the clouds are frozen mid-air in one of the oldest materials made by humans: porcelain. Nature can’t be controlled by humans, and neither can porcelain so Hopf, Nordin embraced it within the three models the lamps come in.

Each pendant has a brass panel suspended underneath it that filters light through its unique, angular pattern that mimics that of a sliced meteorite.
