Apparatus Studio Carefully Devises Crave-Worthy Lighting in Dreamy Materials

Segment table with Circuit and Tassel lighting and a table-top Neo vessel.

New York–based Apparatus has established itself as a stylish purveyor of carefully considered lighting—in signature aged brass, dreamy frosted glass, and even unlikely horse hair—as well as fine furniture and crave-worthy objects you never knew you needed (incense burner, anyone?).

Partners Jeremy Anderson and Gabriel Hendifar display new designs in their enthralling burgundy-carpeted, distressed-walled Milan showroom every year during Salone del Mobile. For the Segment table series, a lacquered top in black, cinnabar, green, ivory, or oxblood floats above a translucent hand-cast resin base anchored with brass hardware. Metronome lamps pair patinated brass shades with conical bases wrapped in lush calf suede; a channel-like reveal lightens the form of the table and floor models while an articulating version evokes the measure and balance of its beat-keeping namesake. The Lantern lighting collection flaunts fluted shades of delicate slip-cast porcelain on a linear brass structure with fetching spherical details.
