I’m a big fan of Brendan Ravenhill, but I realized I hadn’t featured his beautiful Cord lighting series before. He’s just released two new pieces in the collection, a 3-arm pendant and a sconce, but here’s a look at all of them in their stunning glory.
Cord Pendant uses tensegrity with the steel arms in compression and the electrical wires in constant tension. Held together by a triangular brass element, the arms stretch out like their reaching for the walls.
I love that, from above, these look like simple line drawings.
Cord Sconce is like a miniature version of the Cord Lamp. Cute!
These might be my favorite wall-mounted lamps, even rivaling my love for the Nelson bubble sconces! I can’t believe I never wrote about them before.
