The formation of the light is inspired from the "Shikhara", typical to Indian and Buddhist Temple Architecture. The Shikhara forms are representative of the five elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Ether and always form the top of these temples.

The light is designed taking inspiration from the Shikhara form, by representing the five elements; the form mirrors the opposite elements Fire & Water and Wind & Earth respectively in hand blown glass and the fifth element either is represented by a Conical Pyramid.

The light constitutes a combination of blown glass and brass manufactured with artisans in India; where the glass gives transparency to the vertical form.

The Shikhara Pendent Light has been designed in 4 editions to accommodate it in all types of spaces, where each varies in its height i.e. 9 feet, 6 feet, 4 feet , 3 feet and can be finished in choices of metal and glass finishes.
