Design by Chris Hardy, 2011.
When I was conceptualizing this design I was inspired by the of society-a unique, organic social structure formed through the relationships that connect an individual to a greater community. This idea of a single mass constructed of smaller individual elements I found to be an interesting concept to visualize through form. The form is comprised of many pieces delicately working together, creating a larger mass. A single piece on its own is seemingly insignificant, but when arranged together a greater form is revealed. This composition gives the fixture a unique character, adding life and personality to the object and furthermore, the context in which it is placed. It is important that a fixture with a character such this also have a name that carries with it, its own attached emotions. The nature of a wig is adornment, and its purpose is to give new life- much like that of a light. Not only does this name lend to its persona, but it happens to show a comparable aesthetic - Chris Hardy. The result is a pendant lamp made up by combining curved petals in white glossy varnished metal and adjustable steel support cables.
Modern and functional, the Wig Pendant Light shows what can be formed when small, individual elements come together to create a large unique form.

Architect Gio Ponti founded FontanaArte in 1932 as an artistic division of the Luigi Fontana Company. Historically, the company has been a leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design. The company's works were first distinguished by its realization of artistic stained-glass windows, many of which are today still functional elements and ornamental features of churches and cathedrals, among them the Duomo of Milan and the Cathedral of Brasilia. By using glass, Ponti realized what an enormous potential this material could offer in the in the making of furnishing complements for interiors, and he started to design and produce furniture, lamps and objects with glass as the main distinguishing feature. Soon a new collection was ready to be marketed, and his new design concept was being used as a complement to the interior decoration of many houses that he personally designed. Over the years, FontanaArte has had many contributors to its designs, including Pietro Chiesa, Gae Aulenti, Pierluigi Cerri, Piero Castiglioni, Vico Magistretti, Vittorio Gregotti, Ettore Sottsass, Umberto Riva, Alvaro Siza and Renzo Piano.
