A contemporary lantern designed by Matali Crasset in 2008. The frame of paktong encasing 24 blown glass panes, the internal pendant of a similar shape in opaline glass. The lantern is suspended by a solid cast paktong chain from a paktong and opaline glass ceiling plate.

Named Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend by its designer Matali Crasset, the lantern combines its uniquely contemporary design with rare historical materials. Paktong is a unique, non-tarnishing metal which first appeared in China in the 12th Century and disappeared in the 19th Century. A highly complex alloy it was re-created by Meta at the request of Crasset, and with the help of Oxford University’s archaeological material sciences unit. Only one specialist foundry in America was able to manufacture it. Matali Crasset is France's most celebrated contemporary industrial designer. She graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in 1991 before working with Denis Santachiara in Milan, and then with Philippe Stark for five years. She won the Paris Grand Prix du Design in 1997 and was celebrated in a solo show at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York in 2006. She has regularly exhibited at the Musée Pompidou in Paris. The lantern is available in two sizes, as well as matching sconces.
