New Chandelier from Stickbulb Explores Dynamic, Organic Forms through Minimal Geometries
Designed by RUX, the founding creative team behind Stickbulb. They named it after the main branch of a tree, Bough marks an exciting development for the Long Island City-based lighing brand. It features a Y-shaped connector. Therefore, it allows for creating dynamic new forms at an unprecedented scale. Therefore, this bulb fixture explores minimal aesthetic and expressive pieces. Finally it joins their growing collection of signature fixtures. All of these products are from sustainable and historic pieces of wood.
“Branching forms are an obvious opportunity for a brand that makes light from wood, but it took us a long time to find the right kind of branch,” says RUX Founder and Stickbulb Co-Founder Russell Greenberg. “Bough is an organic system that grows from minimal pendants into more dynamic geometries at larger scales.”
Central to design of Bough is a Y-shaped friction-fit connector. It joins three bulbs together without the need for tools. Each arm of the welded steel connector angled in two directions.
Available in three sizes (Little, Middle and Big Bough), the single suspension fixtures each contain three bulbs ranging in length from one-and-a-half to four feet. The triple-bulb design casts light evenly on surfaces and an adjustable ball-joint connection to the stem allows each fixture angled or held level. These versions are the first of Stickbulb’s chandeliers to fit seamlessly over round tables, and are also ideal for hanging in clusters of multiple fixtures.
The new collection is available as a double Bough as well in three standard sizes (Little, Middle and Big Double Bough), which uses five Stickbulbs spanning between two metal hardware connections. This design , optimized for rectangular dining and conference tables. Yet it’s customized in length. This ultimately permits the fixture to grow and in fit any dimension.
In addition, Bough is available in a range of carefully considered wood types. Some examples including reclaimed Heart Pine and Water Tower Redwood. Another set of examples are sustainably sourced American Walnut and Maple and Ebonized Oak. Finally, a new limited edition reclaimed Heart Pine from the demolished Pullman Couch Factory in Chicago. Stickbulb Hardware finishes include the following colors.
White, Slate Grey, Matte Black, Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, Brushed Brass, Polished Brass, and Hand Blackened Steel. .
Finally, a custom version of Bough displayed at Collective Design called Fire and Ice. Made using limited edition Heart Pine salvaged from the Pullman Couch Factory in Chicago. This factory was famously burned in sub-zero weather. The sculpture created using the same Y-shaped connectors. These dynamic, custom forms are for architects and designers with Stickbulb.
