The legend that inspired the name of this collection states that Incan tears of the sun encrust the clearest crystal cylinder producing a radiant glimmer of ancient riches.
The modern contemporary lighting in the Inca Collection - by Et2 lighting - is defined by three clean characteristics: Shape, finish, and lines. These are all simple and elegant features.
The shape, a perfect circle drum, is clean and minimal.
The finish, a beautifully polish chrome, is also clean and quite stunning.
The lines, while slightly chaotic, are confined into the space between perfect circles. They also have an order in their pattern of chaotic curviness.
The 7-light Inca Collection hanging pendant light has a golden glow of Xenon that sparkles through a precision laser-cut metal sheath, perfectly illuminating the treasures that adorn its outer transparent layer.
Pendant lights hang from a ceiling and place strong light over an island, table or furniture. Often the light is aimed downwards to help with tasks, but also outward to provide ambient lighting. A central stem or chain usually supports a single shade, although it may also support multple light bulbs. Pendants work well for dining and sitting areas. They can also be used in a hall or foyer if there is head-room. They are installed electrically and operated by a wall switch, and can also function as a centerpiece.
Contemporary and innovative, modern lighting underscores futuristic form and structure, and geometric or asymmetrical shapes. A modern lighting design instills functionality within an artfully streamlined form, radiating a reflective glow while providing clear and bright light. Modern Lighting complements a sleek, contemporary interior with straight lines, and can also create an agreeable contrast with transitional styles.
These hanging lights can form a centerpiece in any room, ideally positioned over a table, counter-top, kitchen island or in the middle of a larger room. They produce a lot of ambient light but also center the light below them. Great for dining rooms and living rooms or over a kitchen island. A larger number of light bulbs tends to produce more light and lights up the whole room.
Pendants are ideal over a table or seating area. They work well in kitchens and dining rooms. But also can be useful in a living room, office, bedroom or guest room.
Since pendants hang from the ceiling they'll shine most of their light at mid-level height. This may produce less ambient light in the upper part of the room. You may want to pair it with some lamps or closer-to-ceiling fixture to fill out the area.
Attaches to a flat ceiling. The provided decorative canopy covers up the electrical installation area.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the pendant light into the building's electrical supply.
I love how it looks great even when turned off. Have you seen the way it lights up the room? From completely dark to lighted, I can almost see the light rays shooting out from the spaces in between the design. It is both dazzling and entertaining. An instant classic in my eyes!
I bought three of these lights for our home. They are gorgeous. Slightly modern, but not too sleek and severe and will work with any dcor. The light itself is very bright, but we have it on a dimmer switch and it looks fabulous. If you are looking for great contemporary lighting, this is the one.
