World’s Most Minimalist Sconce?

August 26, 2013 3:00 PM

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.

Above: The Bare Ring Sconce is available as a hard-wire version with a powder-coated steel wall plate and mounting hardware; $250 for either version (see below).

Above: Also available as a plug-in light with seven feet of cloth cord and an Achille Catiglioni switch.

Above: The low profile fixture measures 3.5 inches wide, 6 inches high, and 5.5 inches deep (with bulb in place).
