Bold yet understated, Elise is a minimalist tribute to the design of the machine age. Existing as one of the most basic industrial forms, the cylinder, Elise consists of a sturdily machined aluminum base and a frosted acrylic diffuser that becomes a fully dimmable beacon of light. Available in heights from 12 inches to 80 inches, Elise creates a quietly dramatic effect in a variety of spaces.
The Designer: Pablo Pardo

In 1993, Pardo founded Pablo Designs in San Francisco, basing his studio on a philosophy of beautiful, minimal, utilitarian lighting that nurtures the relationships between people and their environments.
