Apparatus Now Represented by Triode in Paris

Triode Gallery, specialized in contemporary American design in Paris, is pleased to announce that is now working with Apparatus, the New York based design studio founded in 2010 by Gabriel Hendifar and Jeremy Anderson. In early 2016 an exclusive selection of their work will be on view in the Paris gallery. Born from playful experimentation with vintage lighting components, the studio now includes a staff of 25 people and a range of hand crafted products that includes lighting, furniture, and objects. Aged brass, etched glass, leather, and porcelain, are combined to create lighting fixtures that fuse sculptural form with hand-worn materials. The result is a warm glow that is at once timeworn and thoroughly modern. Each individual fixture is assembled by hand in the Apparatus studio. Raw brass components are meticulously finished to reveal layers of uncommon beauty. Molded and blown glass components are etched and painted to achieve the “perfect Imperfect.”
