Mobile Chandelier 13
Building on his series Mobile Chandeliers 1–10, introduced in 2008, Michael Anastassiades crafted Mobile Chandelier 13 out of black-patinaed brass to further explore the curves, lines, and delicate forms for which he is known.
Neri & Hu for Artemide
Playful white glass orbs and brushed-brass lines resemble birds perched on a wire in this matte-black brass light, which comes in suspension, floor, and table variations.
Atelier de Troupe
This square-framed light is handmade in L.A. and comes in unfinished or blackened brass (shown). It holds three glass shades, two round and one oval, and is hung by customizable cloth-wrapped wire.
Ladies & Gentlemen Studio + Vera & Kyte for Roll & Hill
Informed by the functionality of a building crane, this mounted light can be easily raised or lowered: The cord slides through the arch, balanced by its counterweight. Krane is available in a large or small ceiling mount, or wall mount.
Philippe Malouin for Matter Made
A swooping, minimal blackened-brass chandelier is an airy option for oversize lighting. The modular system adapts to myriad spaces, and LED bulbs in blown opal glass offer soft, even light.
