Innermost Asteroid Glass Pendant Light
Asteroid glass is a faceted blown-glass pendant and table light designed by Koray Ozgen for innermost and available in clear and ‘petrol’ finishes.
Asteroid is a unique form in which none of the twenty-four individual faces are the same and no two edge lengths equal. In clusters, these faceted blown-glass pendants give the illusion of many different unique forms, when there is only one. Asteroid comes in both glass & plastic options, with the plastic version made suitable for temporary outdoor use.
The Petrol version was launched to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the product in 2015 and has a dichroic paint finish that flips colour from surface to surface as you alter your viewing angle.
The design was originally created by Koray Ozgen as a vase that could stand on different surfaces and later adapted very skillfully into a lighting concept by the Ozgen studio and is also available in plastic as a pendant or outdoor table/floor light.

The Brand: Innermost’s rebellious approach to lighting and furniture comes from a shared anarchic pursuit of design freedom, a belief that you have to embrace the absurd in order to innovate. So innermost has innovation and a little absurdity at it’s core; working with designers from all corners of the globe to create beautifully unique products of the absolute highest quality, since 1999.
