The Muuto Ambit pendant light refers to the design of a typical brazier, turning the bowl shape of the cooking stove upside down to form a lampshade. The Muuto Ambit pendant is constructed using a traditional process; formed from aluminium that has been press-spun, polished and hand-painted.

This method was chosen by the studio to ensure the product is both functional and durable. "We found it interesting to try and make a light from something conventional and basic," TAF cofounder Matthias Ståhlbom told Dezeen. The white interior of the lamp offers a contrast with the exterior, which comes in five colours: black, grey, dusty green, pink and white.

Muuto’s minimalistic Ambit pendant light is made of light, press-spun aluminium. The designers, Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF Studio, drew their inspiration from traditional braziers. Ambit pendant light comes in a selection of beautiful hand painted colours that create a pleasant contrast with the shade’s white interior. Ambit shines, especially, as a light above a dining or coffee table.

"The process was extra challenging since the concept is very basic and the material and technique very conventional," Ståhlbom said. "We worked a lot with the design, shape, curves and textures. There were lots of discussions around the expression, context and 'timelessness'. We also put a lot of effort into trying to make them easy to stack and transport."

* Actual colours and design may vary slightly due to different screen settings, the lighting on the photoshoot and other factors.
