Innermost Beads Octo Suspension Light
The Beads pendant light is a strong statement piece by Winnie Lui for innermost, available in two designs and a range of memorable finishes. The Beads range has two shapes/sizes: Penta and Octo both suited to different spaces. They bring together the best detailing and finishing from designer Winnie Lui’s jewellery craft and combine it with the engineering and technology of modern lighting design. The results are these striking forms which, when lit, provide an array of infinite reflections, as if the interior was inlaid with jewels.
Penta; the smaller size is equal in all dimensions, it’s slightly deeper than the larger Octo and well suited to smaller narrower spaces. The wider Octo is perfect for large spaces, dining areas, lounges and where maximum impact is needed. The 2 shapes mixed together in an installation create a beautiful effect.

The Designer: Winnie Lui graduated from Central Saint Martins in Fashion Communication and Promotion. She is at once a fashion stylist, photographer and custom jewellery designer. She has performed as a stylist for singer/actress Gigi Leung and worked for photographer Wing Shya in Hong Kong while attaining the knowledge of silver smithing from London-based jewellery designer Lara Bohinc.
Inspired by her surroundings, obsessed with both new and vintage toys, she is attracted to small details that people overlook and everyday objects that are beautiful but seem unimportant. Lui’s exclusive collaboration with Innermost produced creations where fashion meets product design.
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.
While our hearts and our studio are placed firmly in London, it is our international adaptability that defines our antagonistic culture. We are ‘as British as London itself’: a melting pot of inspiration, rebellion and wit; with an incongruous mixture of classic English tradition and vibrant global diversity.
