Pug is a dog described as “much in little”, referring to the greatness of his personalities despite his diminutive size. Inspired by the Pug’s charm, designer Jean-François Crochet created the Pug pendant light whose protruding spherical lights are reminiscent of a pug’s face. As with the breed, the Pug pendant packs significant charm and beauty into a small package. Illuminated by LED light, these glass pendants are framed by two brass bands.
