3D-printed modern, decorative pendant

Launching in April, Riverstone by Lightolier can be hung individually or in a group to create an eye-catching design. The outer shade of the 3D-printed, lamp-based pendant is made from 50% recycled water jug material while the inner shades are made from more than 55% ISCC Plus-certified bio-circular materials. Its light aqua hue calls to mind the gentle waters evoked in its name, and its three layers of diffusion create a captivating, floating glow. Riverside is 18” wide at its widest, asymmetrical point and 8.25” in height.
