Perfectly simple. Crane Light from Andrew Neyer provides illumination exactly where it is needed via a clever 180-degree pivoting arm. Held in place by tension from the plug-in cord, the light can be moved up or down by feeding the cable through the arm. Flat to the wall when not in use, the swinging arm comes in white, black or grey, in lengths from 2 to 6 feet.

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.
