St. Petersburg-based Yaroslav Misonzhnikov has designed a clever way to turn those simple sockets into minimalist chandeliers. Palka, which is ‘stick’ in Russian, is a wooden system that becomes a support bracket to hold two, three, or five of those corded sockets in place to form a pendant chandelier.
"Palka" project was first shown as a system for sconces at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2016 but now it has been developed as a system for pendant lamps. Many people buy lamps with ceramic sockets, but then they face certain limitations during the process of installing.
Using the same module and the corresponding adapter, you can independently create a two-, three- and five-lamp pendant lamp. To fix a wire a special design has been developed: the holes for the wire are made at an angle, which allows you to bend the wire and fix it in the desired position.
The project is produced under the own brand of designer «Misonzhnikov». This constructor is available in two types of wood: oak and mahogany. Wires and bulbs are bought separately.
