GRAIN FAMILY

What was meant as a warning from our fabricator in L.A. – that occasionally a trace of wood grain from the tool used in metal spinning could be seen in finished parts – became the focal point of our Grain Family. We invented a process to celebrate this tooling mark. Working with a patternmaker, we create custom tools from maple boards and sandblast them to raise the wood grain before they’re used to spin the metal shades. After each run of 25 parts the tool is sandblasted again, exposing fresh grain and slowly eroding the wood tool. 

A versatile size and typology, the Grain Pendant is available in 13”, 16”, and 18” sizes.

The aluminum shade of our Grain Pendants is formed over a wooden mold that has been sandblasted to raise the wood grain. Through the metal spinning process, grain is impressed on the finished pendant.

A pair of Grain Pendant 18s is well suited for hallways and longer narrow spaces.

Once anodized and painted, the pendant rests on a glowing flared glass socket.

Grain Pendant 13s and 16s utilize a silver tip bulb.

The Grain Pendant 18 is slightly deeper than the smaller pendants and houses a frosted bulb.

A versatile size and typology, the Grain Pendant is available in 13”, 16”, and 18” sizes.

Simple in shape and visually light, the Grain Barrel’s sides reflect and illuminate the vertical wood grain pattern imparted on the shade during spinning.

The shade is formed using a maple tool that features vertical wood grain and references the construction of traditional  wooden barrels.

An illuminated glass socket suspends the pendant and provides a subtle upward highlight.

Well suited for kitchen islands and communal tables, the Grain Barrel provides directed ambient light.

Using a method similar to how drums are made, we cut one long board of maple into pie shaped wedges to create the hollow mold for our larger Grain Drums.

The Grain Drum is available in 14", 25", and 33" iterations.

The Grain Drum 33 is the largest of our drum fixtures and pushes the form to the greatest size possible from standard spinning blanks.

Two Grain Drum 14s provide diffused light in a narrow hallway.

Illuminated by three bulbs concealed under a wood grain reflector, the view from below a Grain Drum is reminiscent of standing under an eclipse. 

The book matched grain on the interior of the Drum provides the amazing impression of the lifespan of a tree.

A flexible and customizable option, our Grain Sconces allow Grain Pendants and Barrels to be turned into wall mounted fixtures.

Utilizing a swing arm and a customizable drop height, Grain Sconces can be manipulated to suit any variety of conditions.

The glass socket is illuminated by a silver tip bulb to provide a subtle upward highlight.

Grain Barrels can be added to the Grain Sconce to provide more downward light.

The swing arm allows you to direct light to where you need it.
