The new Task Pendant by Danish designer Gry Holmskov strikes a harmonious, breathtaking balance between function and aesthetics. It’s pure, linear form not only catches the eye but also serves a key purpose: to spread light in a way ideal for countless applications, giving rise to new, flexible ways of illuminating diverse spaces. The pendant’s light intensity and temperature can be adjusted with an app, making it easier than ever to create the best illumination for the time of day, season, or desired ambiance.
Lightweight yet strong in its construction, the Task Pendant emits directed, adaptable downward wide angle light via an elegant LED bulb which can fully illuminate a conference table. It is suspended from nearly invisible fishing wire, creating the illusion of hanging freely in mid-air. Both in its pared-down form and soft, pleasant light, it makes a statement without ever becoming obtrusive. This balance makes the Task Pendant an essential, welcome part of the décor above conference tables, bar areas, lobbies, lounges, counters, and other spaces enhanced by glare-free illumination designed for human movement and interaction.
By installing and using the mobile app, you can control light intensity and color temperature. You can add multiple fixtures into the same system so that you can control one or many lamps with the swipe of a thumb. If the lamp is installed without using the application, it defaults to a medium temperature and intensity for everyday work and life.
Holmskov’s minimalist design works beautifully on its own and can be installed in multiples in infinite arrangements, creating continuous rows or sculptural, randomized displays of light. Clustered and installed at various heights and angles, the pendants create a graphic, dynamic setting ideal for hallways, stairwells and other spaces with high ceilings.
