Light Years – New Caravaggio finishes


Since the release of the Light Years Caravaggio pendant in 2005 it has been used in residential and commercial properties across the globe and become a design icon.


We have been working with Light Years since the release and have watched it become the icon it is today.


Light Years


This Spring Light Years have released the Caravaggio in four new beautiful earthy hues; Archipelago Stone, Warm Silk, Dark Sienna and Dark Ultramarine. The new tones add depths and detail yet stay true to the classic shape of the renowned Cecilie Manz design.


The new finishes are available in P1, P2 and P3. The Dark Ultramarine and Dark Sienna cords are stone grey and the mountings are dark matt chrome, while the Archipelago Stone and Warm Silk cords are stone grey with and matt chrome mounting.


The Caravaggio gives out a concentrated downwards light whilst also illuminating the cable through the opening of the pendant.


Light Years


Archipelago Stone


Archipelago stone is a reinterpretation of the grey hues from different stones and pebbles. It is warmer than the original Caravaggio grey yet looks cooler in its appearance.


Light Years


Warm Silk


This warm, delicate soft toned silk finish of the Caravaggio enhances the silhouette of the famous shape in an understated manner.


Light Years


Dark Sienna


The Dark sienna is a deep earthy red. The matt gloss finish borders on the colour of cocoa powder giving an intense yet warm feel, perfect for darker interiors.


Light Years


Dark Ultramarine


The Dark Ultramarine finish is on the verge of being black yet with a bluish hue. During the Renaissance, ultramarine was the finest and most expensive blue pigment used by painters. The shade has a beautiful crisp matt finish and works great both in daylight and darkness.

Product focus – Light Years Caravaggio Collection


The Iconic Caravaggio range by Light Years first began in 2005 with the release of the high gloss lacquer pendant. The Caravaggio collection is by Danish designer Cecilie Manz who studied at the Danish School of Design.


Light Years


Manz wanted to create a light which had a recognisable shape and a modern expression. The simple pendant design consist of a metal shade, a chrome plated suspension and a textile cable adding the finishing touch. The Caravaggio pendant casts out a downwards light, illuminating both the suspension and the cable through the hole at the top of the light.


Light Years


Later in 2008 Light Years released the Caravaggio floor, table and Opal versions. The Opal series combines the original award winning design with a diffused ambient light from its hand-blown opal glass shade.


The Caravaggio table and floor again has kept the same characteristics from the pendant but include a flexible tube which is hidden by the shade enabling it to tilt up to 40 degrees.


Light Years


In 2011 the family welcomed a Matt lacquer finish. The metal shade remains with the chrome plated details and the textile cable.


The classic collection compliments any room in the home with the pendants being perfection for over a kitchen island.

New Additions to the Caravaggio Family!

Light Years


Following on from designer Cecilie Manz’ iconic Caravaggio series we introduce to you the Caravaggio Read collection.


Light Years


Cecilie Manz has created a whole new collection of Caravaggio lamps with functional, directional light.  The Caravaggio Read lamps stay in keeping with the classic shade design which is installed on a flexible tube making it possible to tilt the shade and rotate the lamp 260 degrees.


Light Years


Controlling the intensity of light is easy as the lamps are fitted with a three level touch control dimmer, situated on the stand. The bases small diameter means it is easy to position the lamp, for example the table lamp could stand in the window frame or on a shelf and the floor lamp could be pulled all the way to the sofa, providing a more intimate light exactly where you need it.


 The Caravaggio Read collection is available in White, Light grey and Black matt lacquering and hand-blown semi-transparent glass. The metal shade gives a soft and targeted light, while the opal shade sends out a warm and diffused light.
