Perth-based lighting designer, Flynn Talbot, has created a flexible pendant light that takes its cues from the industrial cage lamp.

Latitude is a new pendant designed by Western Australia-based lighting designer, Flynn Talbot.

Taking its cues from the industrial aesthetic of the cage lamp, Latitude features a circular cage of powder-coated steel which encases an aluminium cone that can be fitted with an LED or Compact fluorescent lamp. The suspension cable can be mounted anywhere on the steel frame, which makes Latitude a flexible design that can be used as an uplight, downlight or spotlight.

Designed and manufactured in Western Australia by Talbot, Latitude is available in white, grey or teal.

Based in Perth, Talbot is interested in the ways lighting impacts human experience and helps to transform space. His interactive X&Y lamp – a blown-glass globe resting on a brass base – allows users to change the colour and intensity of the light by rolling the globe (X&Y was also a finalist in the 2011 Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award). Other work includes his Horizon project, in which Talbot created a series of light installations in Sydney, London, Perth and Frankfurt that mimic the sky, with shifting colours that can be controlled by the public through their iPhones.
