With Flags, Bec Brittain Creates Entirely New Visual Language
Bec Brittain has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with The Future Perfect, yet the Brooklyn-based designer never had a solo spot at the gallery’s New York location. Until last fall, when she headlined with “Resolute,” highlighting a new body of work that surveyed the interplay between mirror, metal, and glass. Debuts like this demand a flourish, which Brittain supplied with Flags, a gravity-defying lighting concept. Glass sheets are “draped” from beam LEDs, the assembly poised between the floor and wall on brass supports. Unveiled in oil-rubbed bronze, the rods can be specified in any of nine additional finishes. Similarly, the peach-gray-bronze glass palette shown can be substituted with opal-white, clear, or bronze-mirror. Custom sizes, configurations, and finishes can also be commissioned.
