A couple of weeks back the Pavilion of Art & Design debuted in New York (other venues are London and Paris). The roster of galleries and dealers was highly impressive, so the goods did not disappoint. For me, one of the highlights of the Fair were the absolutely stunning wall sconces at London-based Lamberty, purveyors of exquisite bespoke and vintage 20th century and contemporary design.
Designed and made for Lamberty by New Zealand born, UK-based designer Mark Brazier-Jones, his floret wall sconces of optical crystal balls and lenses held together by bronze filigree were outstandingly beautiful. As a cluster (as shown here) or as individual jewels on the wall, these sconces rock and are custom ordered for around US$3800 each.
Inventing and producing exceptional pieces is nothing unusual for Mark. His functional art is held in the permanent collections of the Louvre and the V&A, as well as privately … from Mick Jagger and Simon Le Bon to Princes Gloria von Thurn und Taxis and Viscount Linley. Pending her agreement, my client will hopefully join the ranks of these connoisseurs of modern design!
