Sylvan meets steel with multi-faceted "twigs" forged from red-hot round bar stock hammered for texture and shape by our Vermont artisans. The steel sculpture sprouts and curves up from the stand before coming to a rest screened by the shade.
As Director, of Design, David Kitts has been a driving force behind an expansion in the company’s design aesthetics thoughout the past decade. He puts emphasis on making sure each element in a design has a purpose. With his design of the iconic Brindille Collection, using mini-maquettes to find the most organic sculpture, Kitts carefully positioned the “twigs". In the final composition, the leaning hand-forged, steel twigs stand as a striking counterpoint to the steel base’s vertical line.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR TRANSLUCENT FINISHES —Variations in finish appearances are a normal and desired result of the process, rendering each piece an individual and unique work of art. Shown here in Dark Smoke (-07) are examples of the different textures and patterns seen through our translucent finishes.
