Cerine is a minimalist lighting collection designed by Brooklyn-based studio Trueing for this year’s New York Design Week. Each composed of handcrafted glass chains as the core design element, the series consists of two pendants, a floor lamp, and a sconce.

Japanese label pas de calais will be hosting the new collaborative pieces within their SoHo flagship store. The store’s windows on Wooster Street will frame the new lighting fixtures, complementing the iconic landmarked cast-iron building’s 10ft casements.

As an homage to the ubiquitous chain link, which is generally used mainly for functional purposes, the links play an integral part in both the utilitarian and decorative attributes of the fixtures. Inspiration for the chains arose from the likes of delicate golden chains to the massive metal anchors found in ship yards in equal measure.
