Industrial Designers Dylan Davis and Jean Lee, founders of Seattle-based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, are packing their bags and moving to New York City, just in time to put their Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier on display at Sight Unseen OFFSITE this week.
The creative duo are the visionaries behind a versatile new lighting series that celebrates geometric shapes, materials and modularity. The Shape Up Chandelier’s abstracted lampshade glass forms, hand-blown by Northwest glass designer John Hogan, are networked via connecting cords and hubs. The resulting modular system allows the shapes to be suspended and composed indefinitely in response to a space's architecture and function.
The versatile pendant lighting system consists of four primary shade shapes: Metal cone, glass sphere, cylinder, and arc. When combined with L&G's adjustable height option, the lamps can be adjusted in height at any time via the solid brass counterweight and pulley hardware.
Shape Up’s playful collages upend traditional notions of symmetry in favor of a dynamic spatial harmony. Harmony at last.
