Overview

This chandelier, with an industrial framework and a dreamy portico, is quite a looker. The new age piece has been crafted from an old airplane. It can easily become the focal point of any room but it is not overpowering and blends sheepishly into the ceiling. A very clever homonym has been chosen for this light: F-Light. It will be loved by people who have a thing for airborne machines like planes and jets.

The design is very practical as even large areas can be illuminated easily with this lamp. The size is customizable and the lamp can be ordered in any dimension specified by buyers. This makes it a very good choice for offices and conference rooms. Its curvilinear shape creates a distinctive ‘alcove’ like look.

How it was born

The lamp is made from a decommissioned Airbus A300. The walls of the airbus lined with windows have been given a new lease of life by being converted into a lamp. This product is an innovative creation and has been engineered using the eco friendly practices of reusing and recycling.

What’s unique

Who would have thought of converting an old jet plane into a lamp that can be suspended from a ceiling? The light exuded by this lamp will take you into a fantasy filled reverie. The windows of the old Airbus have been delineated with lights that gleam gently creating a halo effect. The beams jetting out from the indirect lighting affixed on the piece are reflected by the silver insulation. The curvy outline converges light on the spot right below the lamp. The intensity of light can also be adjusted but tweaking it is not an easy task. You will have to stretch out and get hold of the lamp to make any adjustment.
