Venezuela-born Pablo Pardo graduated in 1986 with an industrial design degree from the University of Cincinnati. In 1993, he established Pablo Designs in San Francisco, a studio that has since gained international recognition for its creations. The studio operates with the belief that the right lighting can transform almost any environment, challenging traditional designs with innovative solutions that distill lighting down to its bare essence: form and light. Sporting a crisp, expressive profile, the Cielo Pendant (2012) uses energy-efficient flat-panel LED technology with a 50,000-hour life span to provide fully dimmable glare-free illumination. Suitable for residential and commercial spaces alike. Use alone or mix and match multiples to create dynamic groupings. Bulb (included): LED array. Made in China.
