Design by Christophe Mathieu.
By Marset.

Exuberant and attractive, the Discoco range of fixtures offers an interplay of suggestive, highly effective lighting. The thirty-five ABS disks vibrantly reflect the internal light source. On the outside, this reflection varies depending on the angle of the light, at the same time as providing direct illumination from its underside. The chromed sphere to which the metal bars holding the disks in place are connected, provides glittering reflections.

"The early sketches for the Discoco date from 1997, but, at that time, I was not clear as to how to bring the idea to fruition. In the intervening period, I had gone back to them a few times, before finally coming up with the most suitable technology and manufacturing process." - Christophe Mathieu.

Composed of opaque discs of molded ABS and injection molded aluminum rods.

Available in five sizes and with four finish options. Shown in white. For custom colors and configurations please call (866) 428-9289 to place order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful design, in touch with today's expectations for any European native. I own three 20 " of these light fixtures hanging above a white marble Kitchen Island in my Home in Darmstadt - DE I am now purchasing this fixture again for my home in the US, plus many other fixtures by this particular Italien Designer. My friends and guests are amazed by the light this fixture spreads out on to the ceiling and walls surrounding the room, may it be kitchen entrance hall or bedrooms. I am sold on it. Elke

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I bought two Discoco Pendant Light after reading good reviews. I wanted for my bedroom so I chose the small ones. After using them for some week I am very happy with my purchase because they are beautiful, the quality is as goos as I expected and the light is very nice because the reflection of the leaves. The color of the lamp is a little whiter than the picture but for me was better.

I love it. I have many taverals check. Could I use this?

Asked by: Shimada Daisuke
Thanks for your interest in this fixture. We do accept travelers checks as a valid payment method. However, due to the contracts that we currently maintain with our manufacturers, we are unable to ship anywhere outside of the US and Canada at this time. We do apologize for that inconvenience. Thanks for reaching out to us, and do not hesitate to contact us again if you would like any additional clarification. Parin YLighting Customer Service

how are the bulbs changed?  can the 26" version take stronger bulbs? i.e. 100 watts can it be affixed to drop from a 15' ceiling to above a dinette table?

Asked by: myra
The 26" Discoco pendant has the following bulb recommendation from the manufacturer. (3) 75W 120V E26 (medium base) A19 incandescent lamps. (These bulbs are not included with the fixture) We don't recommend you go over the suggested wattage as the extra heat generated can damage the fixture. These bulbs can easily be changed by carefully reaching your hand into the middle of the fixture. For other technical questions, we are happy to help! Our product specialists are available over the phone anytime! Brian YLiving Customer Support 866-842-6209

This pendant is very attractive from the side.  Is the light source visible from directly below?  I am concerned that over a dining table it would be bothersome if visible?

Asked by: Joseph Kaye
Hi there, so glad you like the look of this design - it is one of our most beloved pieces! The bulb will not be glaringly obvious, and the only way it truly will be visible is if you were peeking up through the bottom and staring into the inside. The bulb is positioned high enough inside the unit where it really cannot be seen, and the numerous, layered discs are meant to disguise the internal components and bounce the light around, creating really interesting displays and patterns. If you want a more holistic idea of what the fixture looks like and how it is constructed, check out the video on this product page where the designer illustrates his conception of the piece and its versatility.

Can we use this in a bathroom ?  it is over a free standing bath tub ?

Asked by: Sue Lynn
Hi there, that certainly sounds like a nice design choice. Technically these pendants are only UL listed for dry locations, which means that the manufacturer does not recommend installing the fixture in damp environments where it will be exposed to humidity and condensation from a shower area. However, there is a bit of a grey area here. If your bathroom is spacious and has plenty of ventilation, enabling moist air to escape the room and not collect on the ceiling and walls, the unit should do just fine in that setting. I would advise not to install it in a bathroom that does retain a lot of moisture however, just because the humidity could damage the electrical components. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Is this bright enough for over the dining room table - and if I throw in a leaf or 2 would it light the area (13.8" model) I have a round table prior to extending. Can it be on a dimmer switch? Is the "grey" color dark - or compliment stainless kitchen

Asked by: monielee
Hi there. The 13.8" model only utilizes one 60W standard incandescent bulb, meaning that it wouldn't provide very much light, but if you had other supplementary lighting sources around your room (such as recessed or under cabinet lighting as well), the lighting would probably be fine. However, if you go up one size and go for the 20.8" version, it uses a 150W incandescent, or more than twice as much light than the 13.8". These fixtures are completely dimmable with any standard incandescent wall dimmer, so if you didn't want the full 150W all the time, you could bring down the light output as much as you would like. The grey color is not too dark, and it is a matte, middle-tone grey which you can view in-use in image 7 out of 14 on this product page. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service

We bought the Discoco flush mount ceiling light, but our new ceilings are higher than we thought and we wish we had bought the Discoco Pendant light. Since these are over $1000 each, is there any way to convert the flush mount to the pendant? Thanks

Asked by: MaryGioiosa
Hi there, and we are glad to hear that you love the style so much that you want to incorporate it into your new place! Unfortunately though, because the pattern and orientation of the discs as well as the internal hardware and wiring components are different in the two versions, you cannot swap one housing for another. If you look at the top portions of each of the two versions, you see a significant difference in appearance, and there are many additional discs on the pendant version. This will in turn determine the layout of the center components. Sorry about that! Do give us a call if we can provide you with any additional information beyond this.

Can you shorten the 6'+ pendant cord to accommodate a 9' high ceiling?  I live in a small but very upscale condo. Love this design!

Asked by: MorJu
Hey there! This comes with field-cuttable wire and can certainly be adjusted to accommodate your space and design vision. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 to speak to a Product Specialist directly, and we are more than happy to go over some options with you! Stephanie, YLighting Team

How wide is the canopy that mounts to the ceiling?  I would be considering the pendant not the flush mount.  thank you,
