Design by Enrico Franzolini with Vicente and Garcia Jimenez, 2005.

The apparently casual pattern with which the composition of irregular planes creates a volume around the light source, determines the dynamic character of Big Bang's exuberant personality. A powerfully structural luminous body, characterized by a play of shadow and light, with great visual impact yet airy in appearance, it is ideal for personalizing rooms in any style, even when used alone. It provides an intense, vivid and direct light. The panels that compose the lamp and function as translucent diffusers are made out of methacrylate and are available in white or in two-tone version: white/red.

Offered with 78 or 200" of suspension cable. Dimmable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hanging Art Work This light is exactly what we were looking for to finish off our dining room...truly a statement piece....hanging art! Unlike a previous review, our diffusers don't have gaps between them and we don't see the little letters printed on them. If you put it together correctly both issues are non-issues since the letters face the inside of the fixture and the diffusers sit together snug. Was actually quite fun to assemble! Only complaint is that for a fixture of this price one would expect the bulb to be included!!! Not to mention the fact that the recommended wattage for the bulb is not something routinely carried at Home Depot or Lowes...it has to be special ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aptly named This fixture is stunning. The effect is equally dramatic turned on or off, but a dimmer is recommended to take advantage of all it's effects! The scale is impressive, and it works well in open spaces to anchor and define the room. I don't have a high ceiling so it does hang slightly low, but at an appropriate height over a dining table. The hard cleanable surface is nice too for real dusting and wipe down, I have other modern white molded lights that are much more difficult to clean. This light is one of my favorite things about my remodel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fixture, makes a statement. This is certainly a conversation piece. It hangs over my dining table, and I couldn't be happier. The Big Bang looks amazing! To the previous reviewers: you can get it to hang parallel to the cable my simple adjusting the point at which the cable attaches to the bulb housing. Once the steel cables level-out, you simply need to slide one attachment point slightly. I was fiddling with the cable and really eschewing the alignment until I figured this out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It took me two years to find a fixture like this , and let me tell you, it was worth the wait! First the plusses: The engineering is beautiful. The light distribution is uniform; it can be bright or romantic. The glow of the panels is mezmerizing. The light source is 90% hidden at all angles. The assembly is elementary. Now the minuses: The fixture does not hang parallel to the steel cables. The ceiling rose (the part that attaches to the ceiling electric box) has two steel cables that attach to the main part of the fixture. If you want the two to stay parallel with each other, you must twist the cable, and secure it some how. It took me four hours to do this, so it would hang over my table correctly. The diffusers have letters printed on them and some of them show. This is not acceptable for the money I spent. The fit of the diffusers is too loose and creates gaps between them. Other than that, if you are average, you will love it, but if you're discriminating, be warned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Contemporary Piece Bold, geometric piece with modern kick. The large scale is perfect for the oversized kitchen island, given it's cleanability it's a perfect kitchen fixture. Great juxtaposition for a traditional dining room; versatile, bold, it will be received as art. Not as easily assembled as described, but worth the challenge. BMc McGregor Design Studio

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! The price point seems high until Big Bang is installed and then -- WOW! It is truly transformative. I cannot stop staring at it so I figure I'm making back the cost by never leaving the house to spend money. Installation was effortless. I especially appreciated the miles of cable as BB hangs from our 25-ft living room ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stunning piece of art bought this after seeing the red version in a model condo unit and i would say that the white version is every bit as beautiful. a bit expensive--set up took 2 hours without any major complications. overall, very happy with the purchase and y-lighting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am surprised that it came in pieces. I am waiting for the electrician to come over, put it together and hang it. Only then can I give an informed opinion on this good looking , at least in the photograph, light fixture. Maybe when it's assembled it will be a five star rating.
