We came across this project displaying familiar pendant lights, the Leo Digital Network offices in Hong Kong, but something seemed fishy! Unfortunately, this office project designed by LLLAB Architects uses counterfeit Oculo and Pharos pendant lights throughout the space! It is quite the shame because there are so many other unique elements to like about this space - the glass-enclosed office and conference rooms, varied wood surfaces, and more.
We reached out to LLLAB Architects to inform them of their use of counterfeit Niche products. They mentioned they'd like to learn more about our small company and handmade pendant lights and hope to work with us in the future. We're off to a great start!
