Children interact with the environment and get attached to the objects in it. These need to be practical and welcoming as well as have personality. Lamps are items that can accompany children right through to their teen age.
Also small pendant lamps in simple shapes and in groups of 3 are more appropriate than large pendant lamps. Also you must make sure you only employ waterproof pendant lamps in this area.
Also from Tom Dixon is the Mirror Ball lighting featured in the next image. Inspired by a space helmet each light consists of a thin layer of metal that’s exploded onto the internal surface of a polycarbonate globe. This lighting is available in a range of sizes and as you can see in the image below variety can be the key to true design magic:
It is best to take into account the size of the kitchen island the amount of illumination each pendant light offers and the size of the lighting units themselves. For a small kitchen island two large pendant lights might be pretty sufficient. Sometimes a large chandelier-styled design works. Yet it is undeniable that a repetition in odd numbers works best.
