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; 60W/E26. UL Listed. Made in Denmark. Materials: Stainless steel with painted finish or solid copper with clear lacquer finish. Measurements:H 8.5" Diameter 12", 4.6 lbs.

Design Within Reach Murano Glass Chandelier Design Within Reach Murano Glass Chandelier

Whether something is modern for 80 years or modern beyond its years, the date when it was made is not as relevant as how and why it was designed. The Murano Chandelier (1920) is made with a glass-forging technique developed to amplify flickering candlelight in the 17th century. Produced on the island of Murano, it represents the grandeur of centuries-old craftsmanship. Dramatic in its scale, color and delicate filigree, the design is a reproduction of a Venetian-style chandelier, with scrolling leaf and flower motifs. Due to the artisan craftsmanship that goes into each chandelier, some of the joints will show clear pieces of glass. This is not a defect but part of the process that insures no two pieces will be exactly the same. UL Listed. Bulbs (not included): incandescent 40W/120V/E12/torpedo. Made in Italy. Materials: Murano glass; chrome. Measurements:H 41" Diameter 27.5" Cord Length 118" Chain Length 23.5", 22 lbs.
