20-Bulb Drop System Chandelier – Verdigris

By Lindsey Adelman

$19,195.00

The Drop System is comprised of small blown glass droplets illuminated with warm LEDs. Custom brass tube hardware is available in a variety of new finishes, including verdigris finish created by hand using a mixture of salt and ammonia. The vibrant patina recalls lichen, algae, and other natural phenomena that take over surfaces with a mind of their own. The Mottled Brass and Tarnished Nickel finishes are both oxidized and hand-rubbed, lending depth to the sleek hardware. Lindsey Adelman Studio builds each piece to order in their US workshops. Drop System lends itself to extensive customization by architects and interior designers to create an aesthetic ranging from restrained and minimalist to organic and indulgent.
"This system is based on pure industrial design. I challenged myself to be reductive in the number of unique elements such as straight lines and circles, to achieve the optimum number of potential configurations and range of aesthetic directions. In particular, I was inspired by utilitarian lights - such as the rows of bare bulbs in subway tunnels, as well as Piet Mondrian’s painting Broadway Boogie Woogie. He painted this late in his career and was inspired by the rhythm of New York itself. His reductive painting reflects a balance of positive and negative and masculine and feminine - in the spirit of the De Stijl movement to create harmony out of opposing forces. This new collection has been materially stripped down - but the lights begin a life when they arrive at their destination, where they become relevant and personalized. That is one of the main reasons I am an industrial designer as opposed to an artist, I love creating a well engineered, well considered ‘kit’ and engaging in a dialog with clients." -Lindsey Adelman
