Hello Mr Cooper

A new product to drool over by Coco Flip.  The Mr Cooper pendant, just released in Melbourne this week by designer Kate Stokes.  I've previously lusted after the Coco Pendant, and this new piece is just as breathtaking.   Designed to hang in a cluster, I'm actually personally loving just one of these little beauties all on it's own.

Inspired by the old tin can telephone or 'lovers telephone' this spun copper pendant light pays tribute to a time gone by. In 1664 Robert Hooke experimented with sound transmission through a distended wire. Mr. Cooper celebrates this era of invention and observations. The shades are designed to be hung in a cluster, cascading from a single ceiling plate and hooking to various points using copper crimps. The swage lines reference the ridges of a tin can as well as adding rigidity and detail to the form.
