As a sconce, the AEDAN OLED fixture functions like a modern torch, providing warm accents to interiors. The collection features either one or two OLED panels, and delivers a light output of 68 lumens per panel.

The CHALINA collection is available in OLED pendants and flush mounts. CHALINA OLED pendants can be used as an individual accent piece, or grouped together to provide functional illumination.
