Balancing a pair of satin-glass globes for an overall glow, this variant of Astro Mobile Light also displays a shaded light and whimsical planet-like forms. American designer Andrew Neyer reinvents the idea of a chandelier with his assemblage of elements in wood and powder-coated steel that align with the light sources on a trio of rotating arms. Handmade in the artist-designer's Cincinnati headquarters and offered in a range of drop heights to suit individual installations.

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.
