The name of the lighting collection Catch by Lindsey Adelman, a designer based in New York, is appropriate. Each lampshade looks as though it is in a state of captivity. Drooping in surrender and sadness, they hang from the brass stands in a way that will inspire sympathy from onlookers immediately.

Catch by Lindsey Adelman is set to be displayed at the Nilufar Gallery in Milan, Italy. To create each fixture, glass is blown directly into water-jet brass links. Two forms are then fused together, slumping naturally due to gravity. The collection was "originally inspired by imagining chandelier chain enlarging to become the chandelier," according to the designer. The shades are available in clear and milky finishes.
