Floating Globes

I'm always fascinated to learn how designers find their calling to do what they do. For Lindsey Adelman inspiration came when watching an industrial designer at the Smithsonian Institution carve French fries for a show. Right there and then, she knew industrial design was her thing. Her ongoing interest in combining the hand-crafted with the machine-made, the sensual with the practical, and the feminine with the masculine is a consistent trademark of her work. After years of working in mass production, Adelman decided to go back toward having a direct hand in the work and create a more exclusive product, hence giving life to her signature lighting collection featuring hand-blown glass globes and custom plated hardware. Crafted and assembled in her New York City studio, the Bubble Series includes two styles of chandeliers with either branching or stacking hardware, a sconce, and a floor light. I'm finding the whole collection unbelievably stunning, and the fact they're custom-made makes the design possibilities endless.
