This is as awesome as it looks in the photo. It takes a bit of effort to get the shape to poof out just right but it is so worth the effort.

Martuz from Beverly Hills– Verified Buyer
I have been thinking of purchasing this lamp for a long time, but I was concerned about money...I looked for a while for another alternative lighting fixture, but I could find a better looking one. I love the organic and soft shape. I put it in my bedroom and it looks great. Yes, I spent some $$$ but I LOVE it :)

We hung this in our small dining room with a dimmer switch (this really makes the light -- having it on with just a tiny bit of light is gorgeous). It's incredibly easy to install, and I was able to turn it and find the "face" i wanted to see most - quite adjustable.
Convinced that rooms and interior design have a decisive influence on people's motivation, performance, and health, Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire, and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support. In order to attain this goal, Vitra has worked with their specialized team and renowned designers. Over the years, Vitra has exemplified that they are not afraid to experiment with new and bold ideas and eagerly anticipate and look forward to facing the new challenges of the world of work.
Vitra is vigorously persistent in creating products of the highest quality. Once in the factory, the Vitra staff manufactures the furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product. The focus on quality does not end at the factory door. Providing clients with premier service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to further ensure the high quality in all Vitra products, Vitra has set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.
