HAY's Pao Glass Pendant is a minimalist light fixture conceived by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Resembling a tent, the Pao lamp is named after Mongolian yurts, which in Japanese are called pao. When designing the pendant lamp, Fukawasa thought of the yurts specifically at night, when they glow in the middle of the darkness, illuminated and inviting. He wanted the Pao luminaires to bring a similar warm glow and a pleasant atmosphere to wherever it is suspended.

The Pao Glass Pendant, as its name implies, is made of mouth-blown glass. Its clean-lined look is completed by a diffuser made from opal glass and aluminium, which keeps the light source hidden from view and the shape of the luminaire visually clean. The Pao suspension light illuminates without glare and is therefore suitable for the most diverse spaces ranging from private homes to offices and public places.
