World's Most Minimalist Sconce?

Issue 87 · Into the Wild · August 26, 2013

New from Echo Park, LA-based designer Brendan Ravenhill in collaboration with Eric Tine: the Bare Ring Sconce, an understated fixture using a glass socket and brass ring.

The glass socket holds the light's electrical components while simultaneously revealing them, creating a prism effect where the socket meets the cord. Hand blown in LA and assembled in Ravenhill's studio (see our post Live/Work in Echo Park: A Designer at Home), the fixtures are available with a two- to three-week lead time. For more information, visit Brendan Ravenhill.
