Design by Cecilie Manz, 2008.
Creating a simple, soft design for small and large pendants was the main idea behind the Caravaggio series. The curves passed through a number of shapes during the design process, but the final version captures a feminine form. The suspension technology is masculine in construction, creating the right counterbalance to the shade's feminine lines.
The shade is made of white hand-blown glass. Providing soft, diffused light which is particularly suited for rooms where more evocative lighting is required. Caravaggio also features an opening at the top, which casts light upwards and illuminates both the suspension and the dark grey cord.
Available in three sizes.
Lamp Type: INCANDESCENT
Cecilie Manz was born in the Odsherred region of Denmark. As the child of parents occupied with art and design, designing always formed a natural part of her life. She chose design as her living when she began studying at the Danish School of Design in 1992. She furthered her great interest for function and conceptualization as an exchange student to Helsinki where she attended the Finnish University of Art and Design. In 1998, a year after she graduated from the Danish School of Design she started her own studio, Manz Lab. In addition to her work with industrial products, her experimental prototypes and more sculptural one-offs make up an important part of her work and approach.See other lights/products from Cecilie Manz
Lightyears Philosophy - First and foremost, the lighting fixture should ensure functional lighting, but at the same time offer an aesthetic experience, whether it is on or off. Lightyears develops and markets unique lamps for design- and quality-conscious consumers. Their lamps unite quality, finish and optimum illumination. This ensures fulfilling the most important requirement, a fusion of form and function. Every single detail must have its own purpose, and not exist purely for the sake of design.

The Carravaggio Opal is an elegant, bold modern light.
We installed three Caravaggio Opal light in a row in our prewar galley kitchen which has been designed to bridge era with its prewar cabinets to a curved stainless steel counter. The graceful but bold lights echo the curves of our counter, fill the room with even light and set a contemporary tone to the room.

fixture came well packed & looks great
I love this pendant - it's subtle, elegant, understated - modern but works well in a mixed environment. The design is flawless and the quality impeccable. Can't wait to put them up - I think they are going to really make the room...

Beautiful pendant with nice amount of light
We just installed these in a client's house and they are very nice. The amount of light is nice. When the light is off, the pendants appear white, as I think they have a painted white interior.
