Helios by Jean Louis Deniot for Pouenat
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
One of Pouenat’s most dynamic pieces, Helios embodies just what the firm has stood for since its nascence in the late 19th century: Uniting a reverence for the past with a comprehension of the future. In the case of Helios, ellipses of polished steel encircle a sphere of light like the tracked courses of orbiting planets. The pendant is engendered with a yet deeper sense of motion by brass rods that connect one orbit to another and, reflecting the orb within, seem to give off a heavenly light all their own.
