andrea claire studio: constantin

andrea claire studio is a new venture of andrea claire lighting, which has been producing custom lamps since 2004. based in williamsburg, brooklyn, andrea claire studio started in 2010 to specifically develop and launch a new line of bespoke, green lighting. ‘constantin’ is the first of several designs in development. merging the latest three-dimensional rendering technologies with a commitment to hand-crafting techniques, the constantin line features a proprietary method of forming bamboo over metal frames and armatures finished in brushed brass, satin nickel, oil rubbed bronze, or chrome. the studio will work closely with its clients to produce chandeliers that meet specific size and finish requirements while drawing on the unique vocabulary of shapes, materials, and the hanging systems it has developed.

andrea claire studio is motivated by the highly developed body of abstract paintings created by andrea claire herself. she believes that abstraction is a throw of the gauntlet that challenges us to redefine and re-imagine space and its objects or expressions. influenced by isamu noguchi, the studio reinterprets these ideologies into a line of sculptural lighting.

the collection currently includes a chandelier, floor lamp, and desk lamp. all pieces are handmade and original, with specifically machined components and an architectural attention to detail in their construction. recently presented at ICFF new york 2011, the lamps are sculptural, green, and customizable.
