Each month, we shine a light on one of our modern pendant light fixtures through our blog series, VISO Spotlight.
The Maggie is one of our latest modern light pendants released in March at the Light + Building design trade show in Frankfurt, Germany. The modern light pendant was designed by VISO LED expert, Brooks Munroe, and came to fruition through hours of experimentation on the production floor of VISO’s Toronto facility.
The Maggie is a two-tone suspension fixture with a spun metal globe top and a frosted glass insert. It features an ingenious dynamic magnet aircraft cable attachment that can be used to change the fixture orientation based on our customer’s needs.
When speaking about the design process behind the Maggie, Brooks said:
“The design process of the Maggie was very organic. I spent a lot of time on our production floor and had the idea of using materials from existing pendants in a new and innovative way”.
Brooks came upon the final product through trial and error. He sourced a spun metal globe from our Baby Fort Knox modern pendant light, and a frost glass globe from our Rhea LED. The glass globe fits securely in the spun metal globe, creating an unusual, organic shape. The magnet attachment (which gives The Maggie its name) was included to change the orientation of the modern light pendant and direct light in multiple ways.
The Maggie measures 8,2”/210mm in width and 6”/150mm in height. It is available in numerous spun metal finishes including: silver, copper, gold, smoke, hairline bronze and dark bronze. The glass comes in one finish: frosted white opal. The modern light pendant supports a 6.4W 3500K LED, making the fixture very environmentally friendly. The Maggie looks best when clustered on a custom canopy developed by VISO’s Custom Design Studio.
