Pendant lamps featuring flowing forms centered around radial aesthetics. Two of the lamps have a socket for Edison bulbs, while one of the lamps has a flexible LED panel with a soft diffusion layer. The main body elements are made of matte ceramic with a faint sheen treatment. All ceramic parts come in white and black color options. The base of the lamps is created from anodized aluminum.
I wanted to explore roundness — cylindrical, radial, twisting, spiraling forms. Think about tornadoes, flowers, wind, movement — spinning forms seem to always have some sort of system they adhere to. I wanted to capture this feeling in the shape language of these lamps.
I grew up in NYC. Being a New Yorker, black is my color. I love black on black materials where the eye gets pulled in to focus on the subtle variations of surface detail. For contrast, I also offered the design in white.
It was very well received, turning out to be one of my most popular projects. It has a vintage hint, but overall modern feel. The biggest thing I learned from this project was to take a step back and look at nature. I picked a natural theme and then based everything around it — something I hadn’t done before.
