Morten Voss’s Aeon Rocket pendant light has something of a futuristic appeal – although its shape seems to be inspired more by a spaceship than a rocket. Utilizing an unusual combination of polypropylene and metal, the light’s unified form conveys the impression of weightlessness. There is harmony both in the form of the pendant and the marriage of its materials – rigid metal and malleable plastic. The result is a real pleasure to the eye.

As the century progressed, the popularity of smaller bronze pieces grew as they became increasingly affordable.
The trend continued into 20th century with large numbers of stylish figures manufactured during both the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods either as purely decorative objects or as light fittings.
