Italian craftsmanship meets Scandinavian architectural know-how in a newly released collaboration between lighting specialist Lodes and international design studio Snøhetta. Volum—a modular pendant collection—pays homage to the Italian tradition of globe-shaped glass lamps and the glassblowing process that yields naturally imperfect shapes. For Oslo-based Snøhetta, the project was a study in creating adaptable and scalable pendant light solutions. The understated pieces are available in four sizes, and each one hangs from a single, transparent power cable that puts the focus on the glass globe. Whether hung individually for a chic and minimal look, or clustered in large groups for maximum impact, the pendants further Lodes’ ongoing exploration of the relationship between lighting, space, and people.
