Lindsey Adelman’s elegant and quirky blown-glass fixtures – delicate, industrial and organic-looking all at once – are sprouting up in kitchens, dining rooms and bedrooms throughout the country. Her brilliance emanates from her power to find balance in opposing directions: Every one of her pieces offers a push-and-pull between fragile and strong, hand-crafted and machine-made, masculine and feminine, refined and industrial.
One among Moooi Lighting Globe Branching Bubble Chandeliers was adopted perfectly in designer Grant K. Gibson’s room at the 2011 San Francisco Decorator Showcase House. The graphite walls, lime-washed ceiling, and similar silhouette of a potted tree only emphasize the fixture’s statement-making shape
The same chandelier can be used in this particular kitchen. While it’s still relatively simple, it commands attention regardless of if the lighting is on or off.
The majority of Adelman’s pieces are inspired by natural forms. The mixture from the glass globes and angled brass armature in the Globe Branching Bubble Chandelier bring to mind a blooming cherry branch.
These quirky Bubble Pendants work beautifully in this particular sleek but rustic kitchen. Because the shapes aren’t perfect globes, they believe more natural, blending with the polished wood grain about this kitchen’s counters and floors.
An ideal imperfectness of the Bubble Pendant is the reason why it appealing. Since each one of these pieces is handblown to order, not every shape is going to be the exact same.
eclectic bedroom by Elizabeth GordonA clustered Bubble Chandelier is an excellent addition to this metallic bedroom. The grays and silvers are warmed up from the fixture’s soft glow. The clustered shape stays high up around the ceiling, allowing the bedside pendants to keep the key focus.
The stacking version from the Bubble Chandelier uses exactly the same basic handblown bubble shape from your Bubble Pendant and Branching Bubble Chandelier. A close cluster of fragile glass bubbles, this chandelier is exquisite. Edison bulbs give it a commercial edge.
The lindsey adelman replica have also been inspired by natural forms from your sea. This table lamp is fused with barnacle-shaped vessels. Industrial Edison bulbs shine from the gray glass, contrasting together with the organically inspired shape.
The Knotty Bubbles Chandelier was inspired by Japanese knotting from packaging, Japanese fishing floats, and barnacles on shipwrecked treasure. Doesn’t it look like something that 15dexhpky float for the ocean’s surface within a fairytale? Adelman’s idea of contrasting textures and styles is specially clear here, in which a rope is wrapped tightly throughout the free type of the glass.
The Catch fixture is made from solid brass forms cut with water jets to resemble large hooks and links. Adelman and her team blow the glass directly into the mold, which fuses the 2 materials together. The collection might be customized by hooking together pieces to generate chandeliers, sconces or pendants.
Adelman worked for that Smithsonian after graduating having an English degree, but she eventually felt the pull of the design world. She credits much of her current try to her childhood passion for crafts. Adelman eventually went on to RISD to earn her BFA in Industrial Design, eventually starting her own line of Bocci Light.
