Reminiscent of a twirling skirt, the Dancing Pendant Light by Iskos-Berlin for Menu is a playful twist on sartorial details. Its oversized proportions make for an intimate setting or focal point in the dining room. The pleated, pyramidal shade is also made of polyester felt, which also absorbs sound.
