Spun Pendant Cluster
Ladies & Gentlemen studios' clustered Spun pendant is a tour-de-force of lighting drama and intrigue. As if they were fashioning jewelry, designers Dylan Davis and Jean Lee treated the globe lightbulb like a jewel that they were fitting into a complementary "setting." Spun's options include a polished brass, blackened brass, or frosted glass shade for the surround. The white interior reflector adjusts to highlight the exposed bulb much like a precious gem. In 3- or 5-piece clusters; custom configurations are available (inquire at A+R).

Ladies & Gentlemen
This is design achieved with a sense of mindfulness and social engagement with the greater world. Based in Brooklyn’s creative enclave Red Hook, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio merges a sophisticatedly sculptural sensibility along with a spark of playfulness to its lighting, furniture and tabletop collections. The multi-faceted creative partnership of real-life couple Dylan Davis and Jean Lee began in Seattle in 2010 and relocated East in 2013. They chose the name because of its ambiguous meaning and lack of categorization. The free-thinking resourcefulness of the 1970s counterculture inspired their first defining success, an unpretentiously striking pendant with a visible light bulb encircled by a simple brass ring and fittingly called Aura.
Their whimsical but polished spin on geometry continues to evolve, with pieces such as Maru, a jewel-like suspended light that stacks metal, wood and clear acrylic elements above a milky glass globe, or the mini-installation Equalizer, with chameleon-like spheres that change hues, set in a metal framework inspired by a room divider. L & G has been appreciatively singled out by numerous design publications, including Architectural Digest, New York Times, Wallpaper and World of Interiors, for its fresh but timeless vision.
