Astro Light riffs on gravity with its large satin-glass globe balancing a small wooden sphere—as if in orbit. American artist-designer Andrew Neyer creates lighting as asymmetrically balanced sculpture. Handmade in powder-coated steel in his Cincinnati quarters, the tethered forms provide an arresting visual while illuminating the surrounding space with warm light.

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.
