In Common With Collaborates With Skilled Artisans for Terra Lighting Collection
“When you see one of our objects, you’re seeing several invisible hands,” says Nick Ozemba, who runs his Brooklyn studio In Common With alongside co-founder Felicia Hung under the credence that collaboration with skilled artisans is paramount. Take Terra, a six-piece suite of pendant fixtures and lamps inspired by ancient Rome and developed with ceramicist Danny Kaplan. Kaplan throws the ceramic shades, imbuing them with the tactile, handcrafted quality for which In Common With is known, yielding the torch-esque Seneca Orb and Augustus Orb, each sculptural form concealing intricate hardware, so the clay and light speak uninterrupted. Both come in white Stone or black Anthracite and equipped with a handmade dimmable glass diffuser.
