Description: The Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum is about to begin it’s 2006 Design Triennial starting December 8th and running through July 29th. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be profiling several of the objects from the 87 designers that have been chosen for the event.
Alison Berger is an extraordinary glassmaker who has created a beautiful line of glass pendant for Plug Lighting. I choose this light in particular because of its dramatic effect in controlling a room with such a seemingly subtle object. The Word Pendant is a narative in glass and light, something that is profound but not overwhelming. I’m in love.
