Reviving Mid-Century Lighting Designs with Devilish Details
Breanna Box and Peter Dupont, the Brooklyn-based cofounders of zany glassware brand Home in Heven, revivify the lighting manufacturer’s classic mid-century designs, rendering the silhouettes in handblown glass garnished with devilish details: opaque blushing horns, bulbous tendrils, maudlin swirls. The one-off objects of Louis Poulsen x Home in Heven, which will be auctioned for charity later this year, share the latter’s irreverent aesthetic: a mashup of Barbie dolls, Y2K vibes, and a hint of danger. Yet the quintessential forms of the Danish masters remain strikingly prominent, emblematic of their enduring spirit. Pieces include Poul Henningsen’s tiered PH5 in filleted sashimi-colored striations and a reinterpretation of Vilhelm Lauritzen’s VL45 Radiohus as a mythical sea creature, complete with baby-blue tentacles. “Henningsen’s approach is a big inspiration to us,” the duo explains, “taking what was old and making it his own.”
