New York based designer Lindsey Adelman talks about her work flow and how experimentation lead to exciting discoveries in this short video from Surface Magazine.

Adelman describes her process from conceptualizing unique designs to fabrication, saying, "I'm not really the type of designer who will draw something, draw it perfectly, put it in cad, and then have it made. I'm much more about wanting to see if there are any interesting surprises during the process of trying something." And she continues, "[Introducing a new concept] usually for me, that happens with experimenting."

New York based designer Lindsey Adelman has added several new designs to her already exceptional lighting collection. 


BRANCHING BURST - BU.06.02

Inspired by combining the look of vintage French jewelry — especially 1930s-era Lanvin collarettes — with a Medieval flail, Burst uses the same essential vocabulary as the Branching series. For Burst, glass bubbles are punctuated by hand-blown glass spikes and “barnacles,” which have been rolled in 24 karat gold foil.

BRANCHING PENDANT - BP.05.02

Inspired by natural phenomena, Branching designs explore the visual tension that results from mixing hand-made, sensual forms with precise, machined components.

BRANCHING DISC - BD.09.01

The construction of the Branching Disc chandeliers mix handmade porcelain with machine-made metal parts. Lindsey Adelman and her team design and build each fixture in their Manhattan studio.
