Apparatus, a New York based lighting design studio that fuse's sculptural form with hand worn materials to produce objects that are at once time worn and thoroughly modern.
The Block Collection is a series of objects comprised of brass forms that plummet into cast crystal volumes. Molten Swedish Barium Crystal is poured into textured graphite molds, giving the cooled blocks the appearance of ice.The crystal acts as a plinth, supporting and obscuring the heavy brass to create a sense of harmonious displacement.
The hollow capsules are chambers for undisclosed use, suitable for sacred or forbidden objects.
The series examines the relationship between the stable and the unstable, the unbreakable and the fragile, reflecting on what it is to conceal, to enclose and to support.
