5 large suspension lamps by Karman

Posted On 18 September 2019

Large suspension lamps are lighting complements that characterise certain indoor and outdoor areas, adding colour, cheerfulness, and personality even to duller environments.

Despite being a valid indoor solution, large suspension lamps are ideal for public places such as hotels, discos, restaurants, bars and so on.

These peculiar lamps are an ideal solution for spaces that need broad and diffused lighting, such as staircases or rooms with very high ceilings.

Suspended lamps, whether modern, classic or rustic, are presented with different characteristics and styles. However, they all share an important role; they can be considered the real protagonists of the room, especially when they are of considerable size. Suspension lamps provide light and beauty to the environment, giving it a different face and value with their presence.

Of course, large suspension lamps need rather high ceilings; otherwise, they run the risk of being unpleasant, as well as bulky and uncomfortable.

Where should suspension lamps be placed?

One of the main features to consider is the size of the lamp: The choice depends on the style, surface and brightness of the room.

Location is also a factor to consider.

However, modern, classic and innovative lamps must be taken advantage of, whether they are located above a dining table, placed in a living room or a bedroom.

Suspended lamps provide more impact lighting than other light sources.

In the main room, as in the living room, their ideal position is precisely in the centre, to illuminate the whole environment.

There is an exception to this generic rule: since suspension lamps are usually used to illuminate the dining table, whether in the kitchen or the living room, if the suspension lamp is off-centre, it must be moved to the centre of the room, to illuminate the centre of the table.

The ideal height of the suspension lamp depends on the width of the room in question.

Take into consideration that the minimum distance is at least 80-90 cm if there is a table, otherwise 2/2.5 meters from the floor.

As an indication, the distance from the ground to large suspension lamps is about 80 cm if the ceiling is at least 3 meters high, or 50 cm if the ceiling height is less than 3 meters.

The guideline you can follow to understand how high the lamp falls is at the height of no less than 1 between the ceiling and the floor.

Avoid positioning the lamp above passageways. Seeing that we usually tend to lower our head when passing under a hanging lamp, even if it is 20 cm higher,  it could cause a sensation of discomfort.
