mdby……LINDSEY ADELMAN #2
Do you remember LINDSEY ADELMAN? Today i want to show you another great colletion that they hace developed, “Catch Collection”, and we asked Lindsey to explain us the idea of this great collection
The concept began with playing with the typical chandelier hierarchy of chain and a glass fixture. I wanted to enlarge and announce the chain links and allow the glass to hang in slumping bits within it. The Catch Suspension is a modular system with flexibility for any number of glass pieces to hang from the milled canopy contraption. Each piece of glass is unique, dictated by gravity and the way it behaves while being blown through the water-jet cut brass link in the hot shop. The floor lights combine this same strict language of brass square tubing with the sensual melting glass. They also resemble some sort of high-end hand-cuff grasping fair smooth flesh. Yes, they are made to order in my NYC studio. The collection is designed for Nilufar Gallery exclusively, and Salone 2013 was the first time I have shown with them.
