7 Favorites: Minimalist Brass Pendants

March 31, 2015

We’ve long admired the elegant industrial lighting designs of Brooklyn architects Workstead and have recently noticed that several other studios have been taking the same minimalist approach. Here are seven simple pendants with circular, beret-like crowns, all made of brass (plus one in copper).

Above: The Brass Pendant by Workstead features a 10-inch disk, a long brass rod, and a brass socket. A brass joint allows for 90 degrees of rotation, and the pendant arm is available in small (18 inches), medium (24 inches), and large (42 inches), and can be custom ordered at any length; $525 from Workstead. The Brass Pendant is also available from the Horne Shop.
