For his simple and innovative lighting, Jason Miller draws on everyday aspects of American culture, transforming them into something surprising and beautiful. For his Modo Chandelier (2009), Miller was inspired by off-the-shelf industrial parts like those found on Canal Street, not far from his Brooklyn studio. “We have re-engineered inexpensive parts that are made by the thousands in China or India,” says Miller about the piece’s manufacturing. “Modo’s parts are made by high-end machine shops here in America that typically work for the airline industry. While the inspiration is a bit banal, it is now a very sophisticated product.” The Chandelier’s components are painstakingly engineered and custom CNC-milled from solid aluminum. This version has a three-sided frame that holds 10 glass globes, and it includes a 3-foot stem that can be cut upon installation to the desired length. Bulbs (not included): incandescent 25W half silver globe/120V/E26 medium base. UL and CUL Listed. Made in U.S.A.
