An award-winning light piece, the Luceplan Hope Suspension truly revives the conventional pendant light design with modern material and technology. The frame features sleek polycarbonate Fresnel lenses, each of which has imprinted microprisms on a polycarbonate film, for attaining a glass-like dioptric effect. The light refracts/reflects through/from these lenses, spreading a beautiful glow of light across the room. The three robust suspension chords hang the light to the ceilings with great ease. The versatile light piece is compatible with energy-efficient fluorescent and halogen bulbs.

Luceplan was established for the purpose of designing & producing modern lighting, both for interior and exterior applications aimed to enhance the quality of living. As such, Energy saving is and has been a top priority and cannot be confined to the ratio of lighting to energy consumption: rather, it must embrace the environmental compatibility of Luceplans whole operation _ from choice of materials to the Luceplan lights manufacturing process, from product durability to product maintenance. If an object _ in this case a designer lighting product, by Luceplan _ is to last, it needs to be beautiful as well as technologically sound. But a long-lasting Luceplan Lighting product also offers better environmental compatibility and it outlives fashions.
The quality of the Luceplan working environment
At Luceplan, we want even what happens in the factory to live up to our product choices, which are: beauty, quality, and functionality; but also and especially: the environmental compatibility of Luceplans whole production process _ from choice of materials used for Luceplan lights to the selection of suppliers, from packaging to the management of relations with our sales network and with the customers themselves. The environment in which Luceplan operates complies to this necessity to be true to a number of underlying policies: to create the best possible working atmosphere, and to contribute to an intelligent use of spaces and structures.
