The bold Enigma pendant’s original white and aluminum design now has a stunning black counterpart.

With a nod to Poul Henningsen’s multi-shape design concept, Uchiyama’s design makes a unique statement with its thoroughly modern, minimalist construction.

Shoichi Uchiyama

Tokyo-born Shoichi Uchiyama founded Shoichi Uchiyama Design Office in 1977, and has since been committed to creating lamps with glare-free, indirect light.

This dedication has led him to design lighting that beautifies objects and allows people to fully experience the texture and depth of their surroundings.

The ideal distribution of light

Describing how he created the ideal distribution of light, Uchiyama explains:

 “Enigma is designed with matt-finished acrylic – a new, completely glare-free material – to create ideal light distribution, where light is given in a downward direction, and reflections from the shades diffuse in upward and horizontal directions as well. With the thin wires, I also succeeded in making the shades appear as though they are floating in the air.”

The new black Enigma creates a serene interior ambiance as it shapes and channels light. Its bold silhouette and soft, controlled illumination make it ideal for entryways, hallways, above dining tables, and in other living areas.
