Cincinatti-based designer Andrew Meyer mines a treasured bit of Americana with his quirky Yoyo Light. Two spun-aluminum shades come together in the middle for a fixture that reflects light up and down, while a swagged cotton cord playfully ties it to the canopy. In a raft of colors to suit its many possible uses—above a kitchen island, over a desk or lighting up a dining table, to name but a few.

Cincinnati-based Andrew Neyer began his excursion into lighting with his jaw-dropping 6-foot cantilevering Crane wall light. Though trained as a fine artist and not a product designer, the acclaim for his initial effort led Andrew to develop a full collection based on objects as diverse as a gym barbell, a door chime or a toy yo-yo.
“Our design process is centered on reimagining familiar forms to inspire a new appreciation of ordinary objects,” he says. “The process involves a series of reductions until the design feels effortless.” That said, Andrew’s fixtures continue to astonish, especially in dramatic pendant and mobile formations.
