Part of a full family of interior and exterior architectural lighting from Rebelle Lighting, Orchestra pendant luminaires are available in two scales and customizable options to suit any project application. Options include choice of paint finishes, frosted or clear lens, internal glare band or perforated liner. Energy efficient lamp sources with wattage options allow for the desired quality and level of illumination for any project.Flora, new from Fontana Arte, is a fluid and organic interpretation of the floor lamp. Almost in a symbiotic way, the esthetic approach of the botanical world is translated by the most recent hydro-forming technology of the stem in polished aluminum, while the diffuser in opal blown glass wants to produce a soft and sensual source of light. The attachment on the floor happens almost invisibly, as if the lamp were a flower bud born and developed from the floor itself. The base can be freed from the floor fixture thanks to an additional component which allows for the installation on any horizontal surface.
