The light sources are a very efficient new generation of LED that runs on mains voltage (so no driver has to be accommodated) and is dimmable -- a 4W ( 320 lm) in the 478 and a 12W (940 lm) in the 479. Enough for a sun tan. Actually, though photometric tables are rare for decorative luminaires, Oluce do them for Kin:

The diffuser (more obvious in the smaller 278) is plexiglas.

Custom arrangements are possible, as are and special versions -- e.g. other colours, such as red:

The result is very versatile, elegant, reasonably priced pendant, in two sizes and with a good light source.
