The VESSEL collection of crystal pendant lamps were designed as part of a collaboration between Todd Bracher and 3M Architectural Markets, featuring fixtures made from solid quartz. The crystal was chosen for its clear properties and takes advantage of 3M optical technology to ensure that the lights emit a soft spotlight rather than glare.

From a distance, it looks as though the lights are like test tubes, featuring a hollow in the middle. Instead, LED light shines through a solid crystal piece, imitating the look of clear glass. The collection of VESSEL fixtures includes hanging pendants and sconces that are simple and come in a range of colors, so that they would be able to fit right into any interior environment.
