Design by Cecilie Manz, 2005.
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 shade is made of drawn steel and coated with smooth, high-gloss paint. The suspension technology is masculine in construction, creating the right counterbalance to the shade's feminine lines. The suspension assembly consists of curved steel rods and two pieces of turned brass with a matte chrome plating. The depth of the shade prevents glare, no matter how high the pendant is hung. Caravaggio also features an opening at the top, which casts light upwards and illuminates both the suspension and cord.
Black high-gloss finish comes with a red cord; white high-gloss finish comes with a dark grey cord. 118" of field-cuttable cord is supplied with both pendant 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.
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 fixture has presence, the light is very good. We integrate it in many of our projects

Great looking hanging pendant. Colors chosen to match the Tenant's red accent colors and to go with the rest of the Tenant Improvement upgrades we did for their Production Room.
Good quality lighting product! Would use again on another TI Project.

Excellent lights - very happy
We just received two of the P1 (small) white gloss lights with grey cord. I installed them this afternoon over our kitchen island. After a disappointing experience with another lighting manufacturer's lights ordered from a local shop, I read the glowing reviews and ordered these sight unseen. I waited patiently for approximately 9 weeks for these to arrive (I think they make them to order in Denmark) and I'm exceptionally pleased. The lights are a very high quality with a gloss white finish on the exterior and a matte white inside. We have 40W incandescent bulbs in them currently and the two lights at 30" above our 3'x5' kitchen island produce a nice, warm light that is perfect for our needs. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen and are glad to have stylish, timless lights to look at. They match our mid-century Danish decor and will have lasting appeal.
As a side, I don't mind the plastic canopies. They're round and unobtrusive, and blend into a white ceiling well. If you want different, there's always a wide variety at the hardware store.

This pendant is very well made. The color is more ivory than bright white. Love the grey mesh cord and the way the light shines up on the cord and supports.

Great simple design. Wonderful fit for our contemporary kitchen above the island.

Beautiful lamp but cheap looking canopy
This is an elegant fixture that gives off beautiful light--perfect over kitchen table. Too bad the ceiling canopy is a cheesy white plastic piece. Go figure.

I bought three of the medium pendents in black for over my seven foot island. They are stunning in shape, colour, and the combination of the shiny black, textured red cord, and matte white junction box. they are definately a statement in my kitchen.

Simple, elegant. You can 't go wrong with this light
I am planning to put this on the kitchen island at my house. This light is so simple and elegant, that I am sure will fit well any kind of room. And I didn't realized until I got it that the cord is red, but I like that. I got the small size, and it's a bit smaller than I expected, but it will work well anyways.

The Caravaggio has a sleek, industrial feel to it. It is modern and refined. I ordered 3 for my contemporary kitchen........it will complement the walnut cabinetry and Calcutta gold countertops beautifully!

Love the design; I call it 'Industrial Elegance'.
After looking at a LOT of lighting, I was thrilled when I came upon this light. It was exactly what I was looking for...simple, sleek, industrial without being TOO industrial. I put three above my Carrera marble island. Perfect.

The lights arrived nicely and the price was reasonable - on par with other vendors. I like Y Lightings broad selection of lights and have bought a few lamps now.

Beautiful, simple pendant
These are great!
I love their simplicity. The construction and materials are high quality. Just what I needed for hanging over an island--I used 3 together.
By: KB, Homeowner (Texas)
We needed just the right light to light a work surface: it had to be subtle enough not to compete with another light, not too big or too small, and well-designed. The Caravaggio was perfect. On one hand, I can look right past it (in white) when it is not on, and when it is, it gives great down-lighting on the counter top, and the upward lighting lights the top supports giving it just the right amount of detail. Very nice light.

Classic, spare, perfect for a modern interior.

A simple alternative
I'm a nut over lighting and after a few failed attempts at the right pendant over the table (of course I'm storing every failed light for a future setting) settled on this one which has light going down and up. The cord is wrapped in a wire mesh which softens the feel of a cord hanging from the ceiling. Shape is unobtrusive and this should soon become a design classic.

These are stylish and beautiful
We needed ceiling pendants in an IKEA kitchen these added just the right touch of sophistication hanging over the island. They are incredibly well made with the canopies matching the white ceiling perfectly.

This is a beautiful design piece that I highly recommend. I placed it over a black granite island and it provides good lighting and tons of style.

This is a beautiful light. I put it in my kitchen and am very happy with it. It looks great and light the area nicely.

these are awesome looking
incredible lighting in art form! we put them on a dimmer above each nightstand and we are thrilled. Would highly recommend to anyone considering them!
By: julie, Architect (alexandria va)
This light was exactly as pictured, except that they don't show the ceiling escutcheon and I don't love it. Also the bulb is a lot smaller than I expected so the light isn't as bright. But the feel of the light is as you would expect from looking at the picture and it's clean and modern in feel. Overall, it's terrific.
