Architect and designer Elish Warlop (first name pronounced like “delish” without the “d”) grew up in the shadow of the Rhode Island School of Design, eventually earning her MFA there with an emphasis on lighting. “Light can be both sculptural and functional,” she says. “I think my work lives somewhere between those two places, between art and industrial design.” For her Magnify LED Chandelier (2016), Warlop was inspired by the mysteries of water droplets. “The droplets themselves seem to defy gravity as they play and dance with light,” Warlop says. Using glass in place of droplets, she experimented with magnification, textures and imperfections in the glass and eventually landed on hand-blown, sandblasted globes. “I like the heaviness of this lamp,” she explains, “the solid globes in combination with the lightness in which they are connected to the spine. In a small way, they attempt to defy gravity.” LED output: 2700K (warm white). UL Listed. Made in U.S.A.
