"Oh Lloyd! is a simple, elegant lampshade pendant. Designed to install quickly and easily over any standard light bulb fitting Oh Lloyd! radiates a soft warm glow when the light is switched on. It's geometric form is both beautiful and unusual in that it's shape seems to morph as you walk around it - from one angle it takes the form of a teardrop..."
"...walk around it by 45 degrees and you will see a smooth, organic, seed-like shape, and then at another 45 degrees you will see an upside down teardrop. This unique characteristic keeps the design fresh and new.
Hung individually or in clusters Oh Lloyd! makes for an interesting focal point and one that changes from the viewer's perspective."
