Born from playful experimentation with vintage lighting components, APPARATUS is a New York based design studio creating lighting, furniture and objects. Aged brass, etched glass, leather, and porcelain are combined to create lighting fixtures that fuse sculptural form with hand-worn materials. The result is a warm glow that is at once timeworn and thoroughly modern. Each individual fixture is assembled by hand in the Apparatus Studio. Raw brass components are meticulously finished to reveal layers of uncommon beauty, achieving the "perfect imperfect".
Co-Founder and Creative Director Gabriel Hendifar has a background in fashion and interior design. He has designed for couture label JMary and was most recently part of the Raquel Allegra creative team. Jeremy Anderson left his career in the public relations industry to oversee Apparatus Studio production and operations. His traveller’s eye and potter’s hands inform his passion for handmade details.
