Let me start by saying that once installed the lamp looks amazing. Getting there is another story...
There are no assembly instructions included with the lamp and none are available on either the Ylighting or Fabbian wesbsites. There were some very basic instructions on which wire goes where but no instructions on assembly, lamp suspension etc. It took me more than 3 hours of tinkering with it to figure out how to attach everything. The suspension system is clever but not the easiest thing to figure out / assemble. You definitely need two people to suspend it.
Also, for an otherwise great looking, well and cleverly designed lamp, the plastic pegs that attach the cutlery to the lamp body are flimsy, loose and cause the cutlery to fall off at the least movement. This is the one part of the lamp that feels cheap and spoils the overall impression.
In the end the lamp looks great and I am happy I purchased it but the assembly was much more difficult than it needed to be.
