Ilios was designed to provide muted and indirect light in the most economical way possible. A halogen bulb is suspended on a thin, curved wire, set between flexible rods which rise vertically from the base. Despite its simplicity, the effect of the light is powerful from this piece--a prominent sculptural form.
