Pao Steel Pendant Lamp


Brand : Hay

Designer : Naoto Fukasawa


The Pao collection of lamps is an exciting collaboration with established Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Named after the soft, glowing shape of traditional Mongolian Pao tents illuminated at night-time, Fukasawa set out to encapsulate the same atmospheric warmth and friendliness in the Pao Glass Pendant. Pao draws on Fukasawa’s aesthetic of beautiful simplicity; creating an everyday object that draws on design values existing in the natural world. By keeping the aesthetics modest and simple, he brings the design into harmony with its environment, reinforcing his primary intention of making the atmosphere pleasant and comfortable. In the Pao Glass Pendant, Fukasawa has developed a custom LED light source and diffuser, which is nestled within the opal glass shade, offering a functional output of light, whilst still enabling a warm, homely glow. The functionality and the deliberate simplicity of the design make it suitable for a wide range of spaces and uses in domestic and corporate environments.

Born in 1956 in the Yamanashi prefecture, Japan, he graduated in 1980 from the Department of Product Design at the Tama Art University. After working in IDEO in the United States for 7 years, Fukasawa was appointed director of IDEO Japan. In 2003, he established the Naoto Fukasawa Design studio. Together with in-house designers of several companies, he is currently organising a series of workshops and exhibitions bearing the name without thought, meant to be followed by the production of the pertaining publications.


HAY was founded in 2002. This marked the beginnings of the international ambition that HAY has pursued over the past decade: creating durable quality furniture at affordable prices to allow as many people as possible to enjoy excellent design. HAY looks back with pride at the age of Danish Modern, where quality, craftsmanship and humanistic design put Denmark on the global map, and they look with excitement to the future as they explore the current possibilities inherent in new technologies, new materials and new ways of living with furniture. At the heart of everything that HAY does is the notion that contemporary design should spring from a good idea, innovative technology and quality materials in combination with joyful, straightforward and uncomplicated aesthetics.
