The Tube Top Story

Tube Top comfortably abstracts the classic, domestic lamp silhouette to suit any style of interior. As designer Peter Stathis remarks, “Pablo is well known for their rigorously minimal products, and my goal was to augment that range by introducing a new light that applies a modern sensibility to a traditional lamp type.” Playing with that traditional form, Tube Top combines a transparent, sculpted acrylic base to support its lightweight mesh shade in tension, allowing the shade to appear to float freely. Tube Top is available in multiple table, floor and pendant models.


Tube Top's transparent silhouette provides warm
illumination and adds character to your space.

The Right LightThe mesh fabric shade combines with full-dimming
range, allowing the user to dial in the perfect ambient
light for any space.
Multiple UsesTube Top is available in a wide range of table, floor and
pendant models to satisfy residential and workspace
applications.
