Galileo first used a pendulum in the early 1600s to explore timekeeping. As if time stood still, the pendulum shade hoovers suspended over its bulb on a metal chain. The chain is attached to a sturdy metal arm, geometrically shaped to run parallel along the side of the shade. The artisan crafted together solid wood and metal to work seamlessly. The material combination continues a tradition of timeless pieces, similar to the clocks Galileo invented.
