Melbourne-based ISM Objects was founded by Celina Clarke and Simon Christopher who discovered a shared passion for unique lighting while studying industrial design together. Over the past 25 years, the company has been internationally recognised through highly acclaimed exhibitions and awards, and its commitment to Australian manufacturing ensures all of its lighting products are made locally to the highest standards by an artisanal team in Melbourne.
The Bud pendant was one of the very first designs from these Australian lighting luminaries, setting the standard for every beautifully crafted creation that has followed.
In addition to its three standard sizes – small (Ø120mm x H240mm), medium (Ø120mm x H333mm) and large (Ø120mm x H550mm) – the Bud pendant is now available in a special ‘pocket sized’ of Ø120mm x 200mm. Like each size in the Bud range, it forms a beautiful cluster when grouped at various heights and looks equally elegant on its own.
The latest Bud release has a metallic flex cable suspension in gold or silver and its sustainable LED light source casts a warm ambient glow. It features a matching metallic coupling above its classic cylindrical shaped diffuser, which is crafted from moulded opal polymer with a matte textured finish.
The three larger Bud pendants have a suspension in a choice of black, white or clear cable, or anodised aluminium rod that is adjustable on installation.
Perfection cannot be improved upon – but the Bud pendant shows that it can be enhanced. It is one of the original designs from ISM Objects and has helped pave the way for a diverse collection that has been lighting up interiors for more than 25 years.
