A Light Fixture Inspired by Minimalist Jewelry

Like a delicate piece of jewelry, AlexAllen Studio’s CHORD light fixture radiates brilliance and elegance in your home instead of on your body. Debuted at this year’s ICFF 2017 show, CHORD features a simple but graphic shape of a semi-circle that glows from within the inner circumference, highlighting a portal of light when all other light sources are turned off. This void became the focal point of the studio’s latest photo shoot with results that play tricks on our eyes.
