Gloss Collection by Pablo Designs
Based on the traditional, iconic stem-and-base shaded lamp, Gloss breaks that concept down to its basest form and reimagines the genre, adding movement and stripping away the veil of the traditional opaque lamp shade. Gloss is composed of two independently operable halogen lamps surrounded by twin, transparent acrylic shades, allowing for light to be directed in two separate directions. Direct and ambient light is produced from both lights, which each offer full 360 degree rotation and up to ten inches of height adjustment.
The Designer: Pablo Pardo
Pablo Pardo attributes his passion for design and craftsmanship to his upbringing in Venezuela, where he was raised by a family of engineers and artists. 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.
