Sandro Santantonio has designed for Axo Light a collection of pendants and wall-mounted fixtures that celebrate diversity. A contemporary Tower of Babel, the Melting Pot collection features a variety of shapes, colours and decorations that mingle harmoniously. What emerges is a charming architectural construction, an appealing blend of apparently conflicting characters and styles revealing the talent and ideas of a designer bent on creating a contemporary, multi-faceted light source.
The lampshades use a play of light and dark patterns contrasted by white and gold interior. The decorative motifs include subtle optical designs, stripes, square and stylized floral patterns. The patterns are present in both the light and dark versions.
The structure of the lampshades is made of iron rods coated with self-extinguishing PVC coupled with printed fabric. The gold PVC finish of the interior of the dark version is opaque while the PVC of the light version allows light to filter through.
Melting Pot is available in three different sizes: 102 cm with 3 lights, 51 cm with a single light, and 120 cm with 4 lights. The wall sconces come in a single version with two lights.
