light brackets by alex allen studio at ICFF 2013

‘light brackets’ by alex allen studio




the ‘light brackets’ by alex allen studio are a clever and playful solution for a shelf bracket and under shelf light combined into one. the brackets are made from cold rolled steel and powder coated in gloss white. perfect for supporting a shelf above a couch, counter, desk, or bed with the added benefit of illuminating the space below.



the braided, nylon cords come in six vibrant colors: red, orange, green, blue, red, and white



 a LED light is hidden behind a frosted glass lens



the light can be hardwired or plugged into an outlet



the light brackets are on show at the new york ICFF.

alexandra burr and allen slamic are multidisciplinary designers based in brooklyn. they met while studying architecture at yale university. from their studio in gowanus they create lighting, furniture and objects. designs are pared down and minimal yet with an added bit of whimsy, texture, or color. their approach is mostly material and process driven, exploring the technical challenges of the production and manufacturing process while striving to produce beautiful objects and spaces with an inherent simplicity of form.
