Theo wall sconces and pendants produce an eye-catching luminescence unmatched by traditional acrylic diffusers. Specialized acrylic material made into clear, 1-1/2 inch diameter light extracting rods have a glassy transparent quality and glow evenly while providing usable ambient and directional light when illuminated.
The specialty acrylic rod distributes light throughout the entire surface, making it stand out compared to traditional diffusers. Additionally, special surface treatment applied to the end of the rods created functional up light and/or down light.
This simple and unique pendant is offered in 1' and 2' lengths. The combination of petite scale and impressive illumination make it ideal for a wide variety of spaces: from close, welcoming applications such as reception desks, teller windows, and hospitality spaces like restaurants and lounges, to featured lighting when clustered for larger areas like stairwells and atriums. Theo pendants bring dazzling light to any project.
Theo wall sconces are available in single rod or double rod configurations. The inspiration for these modern candelabra sconces derived from the crystal-like diffuser rod used to create them. Because of their classic elegance combined with contemporary simplicity, Theo wall sconces are easily incorporated into various interior design styles. Production of these sconces is a delightful mix of old-world craft and modern technology. Modern LED sources illuminate the specialty light extracting rods that accompany the classic housing handspun by our skilled craftspeople.
Tech Talk: THEO Pendants and Sconces
Product Designer Hans Nielson discusses the technical details of Theo's unique light extraction acrylic rods that are the hallmark of this fixture family.
As light enters from the top end, embedded colorless diffuser particles scatter the light sideways before exiting at the end creating an impressive downward dispersion of light. This innovative design is the secret to Theo's uniform bright illumination.
With dimmable LEDs available in three color temperature options and an option for 90CRI, these versatile fixtures can easily integrate into any lighting design and deliver more than 100 lumens per watt.
Thoughtfully designed to omit any visible fasteners, the fixtures are manufactured by Visa Lighting’s skilled craftspeople for a precise fit and quality finish. The uncomplicated form and variety of finish options make this luminaire family ideal for a range of styles from modern or minimalist to timeless or transitional.
