    Exquisite Lighting by Apparatus Studio // New York.

    26th March

    Holy guacamole! Apparatus Studio’s lighting is absolutely ridiculous. As in ridiculously amazing. If I may paraphrase someone dear to my heart – “give me brass, black and white and I’ll drop my pants any-day”. My sentiments exactly! Here, aged brass, hand-etched glass, leather, porcelain and found objects are combined to an extraordinary effect. There’s a beautiful warm glow about these lights reserved only for the meticulously crafted hand-made objects. Handsome style and careful design create that elusive sense of balance between vintage and contemporary aesthetic.

The flagship store is consistent in tone – it’s warm and industrial, and has the same sustainable and ethical ethos. The difference is in the stature – this roastery is grand.
