token lamp pendants steal the show

It’s not everyday you find modern studio products designed, developed and made by designers engaging both sides of their brain – the artistic and the rational.  And perhaps this is why the duo behind Token, a Brooklyn-based design studio, have done so well.

Will Kavesh and Emrys Berkower head the studio that develops all sorts of furniture and lighting but it is their Lemp Pendants that for me steal the show.
Inspired in shape by the matryoshka (Russian nesting dolls) and by citrus, pendants are a nod to Carlo Scarpa’s 1940s glass designs of Venini.  They are hand blown with partially recycled colored glass and are belt sanded on the outside to give them their look of imperfect perfection. The pendants come in 2 finishes and in 3 colors – tourmaline, aubergine, slate – as seen in these images.
Every project is of course different, but my suggestion is to pick one shape that you love and cluster a few in a nook (at different heights) or along a rectangular dining table (at the same height). These glass blown pendants from Brooklyn really rock!
