Lastra 6 Pendant Light
Note: This product is no longer available.
Design by Antonio Citterio with Oliver Löw, 1998.
The multi-light Lastra 6 is as much design as it is engineering. The lamp body is formed by a rectangular 0.6" transparent tempered glass sheet. Six pressed glass diffusers with high-temperature resistant white finish operate from within. Power for the fixture is distributed to the light sources through two silkscreening processes: deposition of a highly conductive silver paste, followed by deposition of a protective ceramic paint, with an electronic transformer is secured to the sheet.
Lastra features an injection-molded transparent polycarbonate UL-94 V2 diffuser support and white PPS UL-94 VO lamp holder with aluminum attachment grid. It is suspended from four steel suspension cables and four mechanical, die-cast, polished aluminum ceiling fittings, with built in quick adjustment cord. The 30% fiberglass reinforced polyamide UL-94 V2 wired ceiling fitting is painted gray, injection molded poylcarbonate UL-94 V2 canopy.
Dimensions: 66.3"L X 8.7"W
Bulbs: 6 X 35W 12V MR-11 GU24 halogen lamps (included)
