splugen-brau by FLOS; Achille Castiglioni Achille Castiglioni Silver Medium Metal Orb sPLUGEN-bRAU Pendant Light - Silver






The Splügen Bräu is a Stardust Staff favorite! Splügen Bräu is a historically significant Italian design classic. Few designs can match the timeless and sophisticated aesthetics of the Splügen Bräu pendant lamp, manufactured by Flos since the early 1960s, and offered through design purveyor Stardust. The Splügen Bräu was designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1961. This beautiful shiny pendant light fixture was designed for the Achille Castiglioni designed Splügen Bräu beerhouse at the Corso Europa in Milan Italy. Although the Splügen Bräu beerhouse does no longer exist, it's iconic pendant lamp has been proven to be one of the most successful lamps in the Stardust collection. The highly versatile Splügen Bräu is a timeless classic with its understated simplicity and timeless elegance. Splügen Bräu is perfect as a dining room pendant light fixture but works equally well as an accent lamp in the kitchen (suspend three of them over your kitchen countertop), living room, bedroom or office. This Italian design classic is UL listed so it is perfect for both residential and commercial applications.



Splügen Bräu concentrates its light output in a downward direction. The light is naturally reflected because of its internal polished aluminum diffuser. A silver-dome light bulb (included by Stardust) provides indirect but concentrated light. The external diffuser surface features a unique ribbed polished aluminum surface which gives the lamp its classic good looks. The diffuser is protected with a transparent clear zapon-varnished coating. It has a steel ceiling fitting, vacuum-formed ABS rose with gloss white finish. It is perfect for commercial applications since it is UL listed.
