Design Within Reach Drop 1 Pendant, Grouping of 11 Design Within Reach Drop 1 Pendant, Grouping of 11

Saving a factory and helping the employees keep their jobs was not something Peter Bowles thought hed be doing when he designed his first bone china light. The story begins in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the British ceramics industry, where its prized porcelain has been produced for more than three centuries. Bowles convinced a tableware factory to produce his first design, but as the orders started to come in, he learned the factory would be closing. Rather than moving production overseas, Bowles bought the factory and offered the entire staff new jobs with his company, Original BTC. The Drop 1 Pendant (2000) is beautifully crafted of hand-cast bone china. Creating these lights involves a highly skilled, labor-intensive process that begins with raw clay and ends with biscuit firing, glazing, glossing and firing again. When lit, the shade has a translucent glow that allows for warm diffused light. Attention to detail is at the heart of every Drop 1 Pendant, right down to the braided cord, which was designed by Peter and can be found on every light his company makes. Drop is UL Listed and suitable for contract use. Bulbs (not included): 40W/120V/E26. Made in England. Materials: Natural bone china shade and ceiling rose; braided cotton covered cord.

Architects Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup were students at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts when they co-designed their first lamp. Craving pure, crisp geometric shapes in a design world dominated by soft organic forms, they created the Semi Pendant (1968) by placing two circles back to back, producing an elegant shape in the negative space between with a diameter matching that of each circle. Timeless by design, it just has that simplicity of form, which cannot be slotted into any single style period, says Bonderup. Its not surprising that Semi took first prize in the School of Architectures 1968 design competition with its satisfying, perfectly balanced proportions. Bulb (not included): half-mirror incandescent, E12 base, 40W max for small lamp; half-mirror incandescent, E26 base, 60W max for others. UL Listed. Made in Denmark.

For the first decade of her lengthy career, Danish architect and designer Grethe Meyer studied living habits and building practices. She contributed to Byggebogen , or The Building Book, which later became the foundation for teachings at the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, and was employed by the Danish Government to provide her expertise to the Institute for Home Building Research. She founded her own practice in 1960, and her simple and smart approach to everyday objects brought commissions from Georg Jensen, Royal Copenhagen and many other clients. In 2014, the company Menu worked with the Grethe Meyer Design Foundation to produce her GM Pendant (1984), working from her original sketch. Simple by design, GM is quietly alluring. Design must be uncomplicated, and the product easy and comfortable to use, reasoned Meyer, and as simple and anonymous as possible in the expression of its properties. It is in this way that I think that beauty will present itself. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; 40W/E12. UL Listed. Made in Denmark.

For his simple and innovative lighting, Jason Miller draws on everyday aspects of American culture, transforming them into something surprising and beautiful. For his Modo Chandelier (2009), Miller was inspired by off-the-shelf industrial parts like those found on Canal Street, not far from his Brooklyn studio. We have re-engineered inexpensive parts that are made by the thousands in China or India, says Miller about the pieces manufacturing. Modos parts are made by high-end machine shops here in America that typically work for the airline industry. While the inspiration is a bit banal, it is now a very sophisticated product. The chandeliers components are painstakingly engineered and custom CNC-milled from solid aluminum. This version has a four-sided square frame that holds 15 glass globes, and it includes a three-foot stem that can be cut upon installation to the desired length. Bulb (included): incandescent half-silver globe 25W/G25/E26. UL and CUL Listed. Made in U.S.A.

DWR Exclusive Originally known as Davey & Co., the company was established in 1885 and has roots dating back to the shipyards of 19th-century London. Its clients back then were the marine merchants operating out of London's West India Docks, and Davey Lights graced the decks of many of history's best-known vessels, including, it is said, the Titanic. Architects and designers have been longtime fans of Davey's industrial aesthetic, like their Cargo Light (1920s), and satisfying the needs of this market helped the company continue to thrive. When manufacturing challenges brought the threat of closure, Peter Bowles stepped in and purchased the company. As part of Original BTC, which Bowles founded, Davey Lighting now supplies marine, industrial and decorative lighting to residential and contract customers – making Davey available to the public (instead of only to the trade) for the first time.

The unique, sexy and subtle Pod Pendant (2004) is the work of Jeremy Pyles for Niche Modern, a company that happened somewhat by accident. When opening a homewares store in SoHo, Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch were unable to find lights that satisfied their super picky sensibilities. Then Jeremy saw a man selling blown-glass vases out of the back of his truck. The glass designer wasnt sure he could create the shape Jeremy was looking for – telling him that glass is not meant to curve in on itself – but the two of them kept at it, eventually creating three pendants to light the front of the Niche store. The lights werent for sale, but customers kept asking for them, and a new business was born. Pod Pendants are partially hand-blown and partially made in a mold, and no two are exactly alike (like snowflakes). The result is a play of light and dark, strength and delicateness, simple lines and lush colors. The fixture is designed around the shape of the bulb (included): a tubular dimmable incandescent 120V/75W, which Jeremy selected after studying 30 or more bulbs. Made in U.S.A.

Philippe Starck jump-started his career by designing two nightclub interiors in Paris in the 1970s. The success of the clubs won the attention of President Francois Mitterand, who asked Starck to refurbish one of the private apartments in the Elysee Palace. Two years later, Starck designed the interior of the Café Costes, Paris, and was on his way to becoming a design celebrity. In quick succession, he created elegant interiors for the Royalton and Paramount hotels in New York, the Delano in Miami and the Mondrian in Los Angeles. He also began to produce chairs, lamps, motorbikes and boats. Starck's approach to design is subversive, intelligent and always interesting. His objects surprise and delight even as they transgress boundaries and subvert expectations. For his Ktribe Pendant (2005), Starck used a special polycarbonate, and when the lamp is lit, the shade reveals a diffuser hidden inside. When the lamp is off, the internal diffuser is invisible.

Taraxacum is the scientific name for the plant commonly known as dandelion, but unlike a weed that can become a lawn pest, the Taraxacum 88 is sculptural art that provides direct and reflected light.

Almost like a reversed version of the original Taraxacum, which hid the bulbs under a transparent diffuser, the Taraxacum 88 celebrates the play of reflection and light.

Design Within Reach Raimond LED Pendant Design Within Reach Raimond LED Pendant

An inventor and an idealist, Dutch designer Raimond Puts is fondly remembered as the man who brought the starry sky into our homes. He had a lifelong obsession with the pure beauty of mathematics, but it wasnt until he was fooling around with a football one day that he became particularly interested in how round shapes can be formed by triangles. That fascination led to the Raimond Pendant (2007), a sphere of perfect triangles formed by intricate spheres and punctuated by tiny LED lights. The stainless steel structure safely transports the electrical current to the transparent bulbs, specially designed to spread warm white light in all directions. This is a dimmable light you can lose yourself in, much like a clear night sky covered in stars. Bulbs (included): 92 LEDs in the small Raimond, 162 in the medium and 252 in the large. For indoor use only. UL listed. Made in the Netherlands. Materials: Type 304 stainless steel; shatter-resistant PMMA LEDs; white steel ceiling canopy; clear cord.

Design Within Reach E27 Pendant Light Design Within Reach E27 Pendant Light

DWR Exclusive The simplicity of the naked bulb is hard to compete with, says Swedish designer Mattias Ståhlbom of his E27 Pendant (2008).

The name of this pendant comes from the 27mm Edison screw base (or E27) developed by Thomas Edison for the incandescent light bulb. Made of indelible silicone, the socket won't retain heat and resists fading over time. The E27 can be hung singly, in pairs, in a row or in a cluster. Requires hardwired installation.

Design Within Reach GM 30 Pendant Design Within Reach GM 30 Pendant

For the first decade of her lengthy career, Danish architect and designer Grethe Meyer studied living habits and building practices. She contributed to Byggebogen , or The Building Book, which later became the foundation for teachings at the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, and was employed by the Danish Government to provide her expertise to the Institute for Home Building Research. She founded her own practice in 1960, and her simple and smart approach to everyday objects brought commissions from Georg Jensen, Royal Copenhagen and many other clients. In 2014, the company Menu worked with the Grethe Meyer Design Foundation to produce her GM Pendant (1984), working from her original sketch. Simple by design, GM is quietly alluring.
