The Fun 11 Pendant, by Verner Panton.

Shell Game

The Fun 11 Pendant by the late Danish designer Verner Panton creates an iconic focal point in any space. The light consists of hand-cut mother-of-pearl discs that cascade over a steel frame and create lilting sounds when ruffled in the breeze. Light shining through the layers produces an ethereal effect. Made in Denmark, the pendant is available at Design Within Reach showrooms in Bethesda or Cady’s Alley in Georgetown; $1,950. dwr.com
