From Gowanus Brooklyn, design duo Alexandra Burr and Allen Slamic of AlexAllen Studio have been working on small architecture projects while designing and manufacturing lighting, furniture, and objects. Their latest release is the LightBracket, a shelf bracket and under-shelf light combined into one unit. The light/bracket in stark white is complimented by braided nylon cords in eight vibrant colors.

Above: Made to support a shelf above a counter, desk, or bed to illuminate the space below. The Lightbracket, available in AlexAllen’s shop for $150, comes in a selection of colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, and black.

Above: The light is made from powder-coated steel, an LED strip light, a plexiglass lens, a 9-foot braided, a nylon cord, and an inline cord switch.

Above: The same design is available as a standalone Sconce for $150.
