The Cord Light Series by Brendan Ravenhill are Like Simple Sketches

Each lamp in the Cord Light Series looks like a simple sketch. Made up of minimalist lines, they could easily disappear in the background. Nevertheless, that would never be the case due to their striking design. Taking on basic geometrical shapes, with each point ending in a light bulb, they look like miniature constellations.

Designed by Brendan Ravenhill, an industrial designer based in Los Angeles, California, the Cord Light Series is made up of various models including a pendant lamp, wall sconce, table lamp and chandelier. Each design "uses tensegrity with the steel arms in compression and the electrical wires in constant tension," according to Design Milk. They are held together with a triangular brass element.
