Blown Away- Designer: Bec Brittain via @design-milk

Brooklyn-based designer Bec Brittain is known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks lighting, often combining brass and glass into playful, geometric shapes. The latest addition to the ever-growing collection is the Vise light, which joins a hand-blown, double-fade glass globe that mimics a sunset and situates it within a brass, claw-like structure. The fixture, named after Vise-Grip pliers, with its streamlined, open-volume shape, falls right in line with her expanding portfolio of sculptural lights. For this month’s Deconstruction, we take a look at how the Vise is made.
