I have officially launched the Bevel Pendant, my first light fixture. The first of hopefully many more to come. This pendant idea came to me from my love for all things Scandinavian design. A design scene where the triangle and chevron are used as an everyday basic, which sits right at home with my taste! While working on many different (other) light fixture ideas to be my first, this one just sort of came to me almost by accident. So I just went with it and kept it simple. And in true Scandinavian fashion it is available in matte black. I drew up the design and put it into Solidworks to make sure all the parts were going to give me the results I was looking for. After some slight modifications I sourced the custom body (which is two separate parts) from a metal spinner (I found a new manufacturing love!) and the remaining stock parts & cord from a supplier. Then worked with a local powder coater. Tested the final piece and here we are!

Inspired by Scandinavian design this chevron shaped pendant will look good in your modern or MCM home. Available in matte black powdercoated steel. Fits any candelabra sized bulb. 75w max. 8” tall x 4” diameter.
I am proud to say I have officially launched my first light fixture! Hopefully there will be many more to come.
Parachilna Aballs lighting collection by Jaime Hayon
Hayon is consistently a genius designer and his latest collection is nothing short of that as well.
I have been slowly working on a sculptural light fixture for over our kitchen island, and thought I would share the progress.Â The first prototype above was done in steel and brass and I was very happy with the results. However, it weighed far too much since the plan was to cantilever it from a wood base. So I reconstructed all of the brass parts that you see with aluminum instead to lightweight it.Â Above is the reconstructed version after a coat of gloss black. The branch is about 4 feet long so it cantilevers quite a bit. I’m really happy with how it turned out. You can also see the wood base. I’m going to trim a little off of the wood vertical down rod, but I purposely wanted it to be long. The branch attaches with a brass swivel. All that is left is to disassemble it, wire all the components and put it back together, do some touch up painting and then hardwire the fixture.
Beauty Light (working title) by EVRT
Amongst the many things I am working on at once, trying to keep the design & creativity juices flowing outside of my day job, most of what I am developing is lighting. Which is something I have always dreamed of getting into.
Here is a concept light which developed out of my love for photography and especially vintage photography equipment. Directly influenced by the folding flashes that existed long ago like the Honeywell pictured.
I’ve taken first steps in prototyping it which will ultimately be a laser cut folded metal shade in stainless steel. Next steps are to prototype the wood base.
Drift Lamps by EVRT
Coming to the shop this Spring is a project I have been working on a lot over the last month, and pictured here is the first working prototype. Drift Lamps will be comprised of a drift wood base that is scavenged from different rivers and lakes, with a brass branch that holds three candelabra bulbs.
The branch will essentially stay the same but each base will be unique to the piece of driftwood that is found. I’m still determining the fabric cord I want to use but after that it is ordering a bulk order of parts and starting production! Hope to start putting them up in a couple of months.

PATH is a design and fabrication studio created by architect Matt Hutchinson, with a seriously awesome portfolio of design work. The Clove lamp being just one example of the outstanding design work coming from his studio.
Babylon by Object Interface
I have a major green thumb and an obsession with lighting, so this is a dream product! They especially knocked it out of the park with stunning product photography.
