I couldn’t help myself!
Schprokets is a gear-shaped lighting fixture designed by Christopher Moulder that uses no wires or sockets, but instead uses low-voltage bulbs that give off a halo-like glow.
Moulder has created a structure that not only looks like a turning gear, but it functions as both the light and the socket. “I wanted to create a piece with no wires or sockets, so I started experimenting with low voltage bulbs,” Moulder explains. “Low voltage means the fixture doesn’t have to be insulated. Instead, the Schproket is the socket.”
Using Xenon long-life bulbs, the Schprokets can be hung on the wall, from the ceiling or even in stacks in rings ranging from 11″ up to 47″. They’re also available Silver Metallic, Torch Red, and White.
I am loving this chandelier assemblage by Moulder of his Schprokets that he calls “Classic.” 263 crisp light points cascade down over 10 feet to meet a delicate, hand-lampworked, glass tear, that plumbs the Schproket rings with a poignant gravity and anchors the lighting sculpture in the space it inhabits.
