In her studio on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, designer Lindsey Adelman blends organic inspirations, handmade craft, and machine precision. Since 2006, the New York native has focus on hand-blown glass, collaborating with local artisans on pieces like the Bubble Series chandelier, featuring handmade glass globes suspended from brass arms, and the Knotty Bubbles, a tangle of rope, glass, and light inspired by Japanese packaging and maritime culture. Her early experience working with off-the-shelf parts served as the inspiration for her customizable, mix-and-match “You Make It” lighting series. Other pieces include her charming woodchuck pendants, hanging LED lights with colorful stems inspired by glassblowing tools, and darker designs inspired by the idea of nature gone wild—a trait that spills over into her artwork, drawings painstakingly made of human hair.
