ICFF Preview: Radiata by Studio Dunn
Asher Dunn, a Rhode Island-based designer and woodworker, won ICFF's "Best New Designer" award back in 2010. His main project is Studio Dunn, which sources and manufactures all of its products within a 50-mile radius of Providence, and Dunn's most recognizable works are a series of American hardwood stools that successfully bridge the traditional-meets-modern chasm. For 2013, Studio Dunn returns to New York's preeminent furniture fair with a new lighting design, the Radiata.

Inspired by the moon jellyfish of the same name, Radiata incorporates thin, bright filaments of light shining through a blown-glass globe, which as Dunn explains, "undulates with a liquidity that is reminiscent of the delicate propulsion of jellyfish through water." The piece is available as a pendant in two colorways, Opal White and Smoke Grey.
Check out Studio Dunn's ICFF booth (#858) this weekend at the Javits Center, and shop the lighting online for $2,100.
