Standout: Two rings interlocking at right angles appear as if they’re trying to escape from the pendant’s sprayed-on protective case—an inventive use of the company’s distinctive cocoon-wrapping technique.
Designer: Bec Brittain for MMairo
Standout: Unlike the elongated bird for which it is named, this light’s angular sculptured form is offered in three types of marble (including Fior Di Pesco Carnico) and brass. Through Bec Brittain.
Designer: Jordi Canudas for Marset
Standout: Gradated layers of color—created by dipping the glass orbs in paint—moderate the intensity of light emanating from the pendant, its design sparked by hands-on experimentation.
