The Pembridge Pendant is beautifully constructed of overlapping tiers of fine bone china hung from a chromed steel frame. It has a matching bone china ceiling rose and a classic cotton braided flex. Made by all British firm Original BTC, it’s a stunning combination of modern and retro, and it compliments all styles of interior. Emanating a soft atmospheric ambience, its gently diffused light is calm and relaxing. And for extra measure, this iconic pendant’s open top creates a subtle up-lit area of dancing shadows and transient pulses of light. Original BTC was established in 1990 by the talented Peter Bowles. His lighting designs are relaxed and familiar – inspired by old-style factory fittings, toys from his childhood and iconic 40s designs. Original BTC is British all the way through and has three factories, each keeping a different side of traditional British manufacturing alive. In Birmingham, all of their metal components are made; in Stoke on Trent a kiln rages at 1240 Celcius to make flawlessly translucent bone china; and the whole lot is assembled in Oxford. What’s more – the company exports 70% of all its lights and lamps. Who says British manufacturing industry is dead? Original BTC’s products can be seen at The Design Centre in London, Gordon Ramsey’s Maze and the amazing Merci store in Paris. The Pembridge Pendant is available in three sizes.
