Used for centuries as the tool to both teach and communicate mathematics, the abacus was found in one form or another across the ancient world. At Vakkerlight, we saw the beauty in the abacus’ mathematical purity and clean, functional design. In the hands of Vakkerlight craftsmen, we’ve turned this inspiration into a new collection of modular pendant lamps whose flexibility allows for complex and beautiful configurations. Each module, or strand, of Abacus contains a custom set of round, hand-blown opal glass which emit a soft and uniform light.
And, as the original abacus was used to calculate everything from simple addition to complex formulas, we’ve retained the same scalability. Due to its customization, our Abacus light is just as suitable in a home as a commercial space, and its almost infinite configurations makes sure you always come up with the right solution.
