Choosing the right pendant light for your space

Pendant lights are like jewellery to a room. Whilst they can be a stunning design feature in their own right they also bring your room design together to create a sense of completeness. So how do you choose the right pendant light for your space? 1. Consider the function of your pendant light: Ambient lighting (general lighting).  Glass pendant lights work really well in this situation as they bounce the light around the room. Consider including a dimmer switch so you change the level of lighting too. Task lighting (for instance above a kitchen bench) Accent lighting (to highlight a particular feature). You might hang a pendant light above a beautifully carved table to draw the eye to it and...

Our largest ever light!

News From Zakay Studio and Gallery Local glass artist, Asaf Zakay, is preparing to ship his signature piece, the Tetra Matrix, all the way to Washington State from his studio and gallery in the Northern Rivers. The piece is one of the largest ever created by Zakay. This $25,000 commission has been made using 576 triangles of dichroic glass, the shape based on the geometric design called a tetra matrix or the 64 tetrahedron. The best way to describe the shape is that it is 64 tetrahedron’s joined together or 8 star tetrahedrons. A star tetrahedron was depicted by Da Vinci in the Vitruvian Man.   Asaf started creating geometric sculptures in 2005 and displayed them at local markets around...

Introducing the Tetra Matrix - 64 Tetrahedron Glass Sculpture

The incredible Tetra Geometrica glass sculpture and is tetra matrix in shape. The Tetra is the result of a discussion between designer, Asaf Zakay, and physicist, Nassim Haramein and hand-crafted in Australia. It is the intrinsic conceptual element of Haramein's Unified Field Theory, in which he describes the structure of the vacuum as a fractal geometry based on Platonic Solids and Archimedean geometries. The Tetra is available in a variety of glass colours, including clear double bevelled glass, clear sapphire blue glass, clear emerald green glass, clear rose glass dichroic clear glass, dichroic grey glass.   Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which gives the glass dichroic optical properties. This causes an array of colour to be...
