New York 2016 – Design brand APPARATUS presents its 2016 design collections. The CIRCUIT series is a modular lighting design composed by a glass capsule nested in a brass oval unit that can be composed in endless solutions. The TASSEL series features mold-blown glass cylinders that are grouped under a brass dome evoking traditional chandelier. The new range comprises also a marble version of the PORTAL TABLES and a umbrella stand.

“I think what is so interesting about our two new collections of lighting is how opposed they are in inspiration“ says Creative Director Gabriel Hendifar. “The CIRCUIT series feels very much from the future. With the TASSEL collection I wanted to capture my childhood feeling of wonderment when I used to look at the traditional crystal chandeliers that were hung in our home”.
The CIRCUIT series plays on concepts of rhythm and layering. Each modular unit is composed by an oblong brass shade hosting a glass capsule. Brass poles with small knobs at the ends connect multiple pieces for endless combinations. The hanging pieces have a graphic, hypnotic presence, feeling at once from the future and the past.
The TASSEL SERIES condenses the warmth and decadence of a traditional chandelier to a concise, modern conclusion. Emanating from brass domes, the light is amplified as it refracts through mold-blown glass cylinders. Evocative of a crystal pendant, each piece of glass hangs freely from brass rings.
2016 new range features also a marble version of the PORTAL TABLES. Available in both coffee and dining table versions, the new designs are composed of geometrical volumes assembled together with notches revealing establish points of entry. The MATCH TREE HALL + UMBRELLA STAND is comprised of a solid marble cylinder that supports a brass armature, creating a nesting pair.
APPARATUS is a New York based design studio working with aged brass, leather, marble and porcelain to create lighting fixtures, furniture and objects. The studio’s language is rooted in geometry and contrast, fusing sculptural form with hand-worn materials that straddle the line between the perfect and the imperfect. Connecting with a tradition of studio craftsmanship, each individual fixture is crafted by hand in the Apparatus workshop.
