Rare set of two Bilobo glass pendants by Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Flos.

The metal base has two retractable attachment points, which can, almost without contact, be inserted inside the glass shade. The shade itself is semi-opaque made irregular with bits of silica.

The similar designed Sfera pendant is described in the Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 by Giuliana Gramigna on Page 113 (1964).
