Papillion Suspension Light

by 101 Copenhagen


Papillion Suspension Light is a sleek, modern and elegant suspension light created by Kristian Sofus Hansen & Tommy Hyldahl for 101 Copenhagen. The designers found inspiration in Mathieu Matégots' method of working with metal sheets in a soft and organic way, which led them to adopt the mask perforated sheet metal as a key material - or wood for the Colonial version. This, together with the lens shape of each shade, adds an organic quality to the hard metal surface, while optimising light diffusion. Papillion, which means butterfly in French, is based on a simplified Art Deco chandelier structure, with six illuminating lampshades elegantly positioned in a lightweight metal construction, forming the outer shape of an hexagon. The perforated lampshades illuminates the ceiling, while indirect light filters through the perforated brass sheets or the woven mesh (rattan) for the Colonial version, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere below. The six arms are mounted to a riffled centre piece, adding a shimmering and reflective quality to the light. The Papillion Suspension light is suitable for both residential and commercial spaces, for example in living rooms, dining rooms, hotel suites, restaurants and bars.

Papillion is available in two variations: brass with perforated lampshade or oxidised finish with opaque glass lampshades. Please make your selection in the Finish options above.
