Iron and Crystal
By Jamie Waugh / Published by Dwell

The lamp is composed of reused industrial piping and both teardrop and circular crystals—Swarovski, if you wish—dangling from thin chains all around the base. Bulbs sometimes have exposed filaments; some of his chandeliers feature ovular refrigerator bulbs. The lamp comes in two-bulb and four-bulb iterations.

For those who love the chandelier but don't have the place (or the ambition) to install it, this is the perfect medium. And judging by their success, this is the way many are thinking—by the time of a recent opening in Soho's Desiron Gallery, his lamps had already quickly sold out.
