Alva Pendant by Tech Lighting
The classic Edison-style squirrel cage lamp is reincarnated in the Alva pendant as a modern socket and cord-style LED pendant. It features a powerful downward-firing LED that is smartly hidden within the "socket" then combined with a solid "bulb" of pure optic crystal. Intricately detailed "filaments" are laser-etched into the crystal for a visually intriguing light fixture. It includes a 14.5 watt, 1000 net lumen, 3000K, 2200K or Warm Color Dimming 3000K-2200K LED module. Available in a Black or Satin Nickel finish, there are a variety of color cords from which to choose. Alva is dimmable with a low-voltage electronic dimmer and is provided with up to 24 feet of field-cuttable cloth cord.
