28 Pendants (2008) by Omer Arbel Office

Photographs by Spencer Hung, Janice Nicolay, and Gwenael Lewis

Individual 28 pendants result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby air pressure is intermittently introduced into and then removed from a glass matrix which is intermittently heated and then rapidly cooled. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which is made of opaque milk glass and houses a low voltage (12V, 20W halogen/xenon) or our proprietary and replaceable LED.

28 Pendants are designed to cluster in hexagonal shapes which nestle into each other to create patterns as dictated by the needs of the interior. They may also be clustered or composed in an ambient manner similar to their distant cousins the 14’s.

Beautiful fixtures.

Après Collection for Reclaim NYC

 UM Project´s stylish collection of furnishings for the Reclaim NYC movement is testament to the adage that whenever there is destruction, rebirth will always follow. The destruction in question was wrought by Hurricane Sandy, and this initiative is using the debris from the disaster to fashion new objects in creative defiance of the recent force majeure.

The designers have used all sorts of rescued materials – from punctured steel, an old electrical junction box, to some re-turned ash and maple.

Cub Lamp by Julian Robin

A lamp which also exists when it is not connected !

This lamp, designed by Julian Robin, looks like a block of wood, carved into the tree. When the lamp lights, the wood diffuses a warm light, revealing the spirit of the original foliage wood.

I keep seeing examples of translucent wood lamps. I think they are absolutely beautiful, if not terribly efficient for actually emitting light.
