Accent lighting: SKIRT collection by Axo Light USA

SKIRT collection
SKIRT is a family of brightly colored, drum-shaped pendants, ceiling and floor lamp designs.

Axo Light announced the availability of SKIRT pendant, ceiling- and wall-mount, table and floor lights. SKIRT is a family of brightly colored, drum-shaped pendants, ceiling and floor lamp designs; though a rectangular pendant and half-rectangular shape wall light are also available. SKIRT was designed by Manuel Vivian.

Each model in the SKIRT family produces direct downward as well as diffused ambient/accent interior lighting. Models are composed of a single pleated layer or two overlapping layers — an interior color echoed by black netting.
