Papillion refers to the French word for butterflies “Papillion”. The lamp consists of 6 illuminating lampshades, each elegantly position in a lightweight metal construction, which together forms the shape of a hexagon.
The floating lampshades reflects the direct light towards the ceiling, and filters indirect light towards the space underneath. The 6 arms are mounted to a riffled center piece, adding a shimmering and reflective quality to the lamp.
Papillion comes in brass with perforated lampshades, which filters the light through every little hole in the perforated lampshade.
