The Myriad chandelier by Gabriel Scott recalls natural forms, like branches or bioluminescent organisms, as much as it does fine jewelry.


For Lasvit’s Cipher collection, Yabu Pushelberg created a modular system that can be extended or multiplied for hospitality use, or kept simple for residential spaces.
