Simple drum pendant light painted white and gold

Wow interior designers with the elevated aestetics of the Riff drum ceiling light.

“We wanted to create a fixture with depth, to draw attention to the contoured inner reflector," says Visa Lighting Senior Industrial Designer Hans Nielson. “The crisp lines and carefully proportioned visual weight of the fixture help make a subtle, yet confident statement in spaces of any style."

A Drum Ceiling Light, Made by Hand

Riff drum ceiling light takes a popular drum pendant shape and creates a fresh modern interpretation.

The simple, drum silhouette is created with thin, artfully-rolled aluminum. This metal shade is fitted with a contoured inner reflector hand-spun by our skilled crafts-people. As a result, Riff’s concave inner spinning beautifully juxtaposes the crisp, straight-sided outer fixture housing.

Riff hangs from the ceiling at the end of a thin power cable, and the wide underside lets a bright and even light layer emanate out, illuminating the space below with ease.

Beautiful Glare-Free LED Light Output

Rather than utilize exposed lamping, Riff relies on a flat, acrylic diffuser that sits over the LED sources. Riff's LED diffuser was optimized to reduce glare and create the most comfortable light.

“We built a test setup where we could keep moving the LEDs back until they lit up the acrylic evenly,” says Visa Lighting’s Lead Product Engineer, Alex Murray. “This distributes functional light over a larger surface area.”

Multiple Drum Pendant Sizes and Options

This high-performance downlight pendant is offered in 16, 24 and 32 inch diameters. Choose between light output temperatures 2700K, 3000K, 3500K or 4000K with a 90CRI option. This drum pendant is easy to hang with integral LED driver-in-canopy.

“We wanted to create a fixture with depth, to draw attention to the contoured inner reflector," says Visa Lighting Senior Industrial Designer Hans Nielson. “The crisp lines and carefully proportioned visual weight of the fixture help make a subtle, yet confident statement in spaces of any style."

Riff's simple lines and smooth, curved underside can also become a canvas for a pop of color. Designers can create a color story by selecting any two of our more than 25 painted finishes or alternative metal finishes.
