Brendan Ravenhill Studio specializes in lighting, furniture and product design. Since its founding in 2010, the studio has explored material, function, and manufacturing methods to create a body of work that they hope you love. Their products are devoid of excess and ornament, striving for a logical celebration of physics, material and craft. He is inspired to create in a world already full of things because he believes that well designed objects embody original ideas. They find great reward in making thoughtful work and are proud to build all of their pieces in the USA.
The Hood Family is inspired by wooden sailboats and the work of Aino Aalto. Thin sheets of polyethylene are die cut and bent, joining narrow spines of white oak to create the hooded shade. The complex joinery of the Pendant and Chandelier results in lightweight frames that hold the glowing, sail-like shades aloft. Brass hardware completes the three part material palette.
The Hood Pendant features a triangular interlocking wooden armature suspended by a three-part wiring harness that radiates from a brass wiring hub. Simple bent shades of matte white polyethylene are fastened to wood spines with nylon bolts to complete the piece.
