Lindsey Adelman, ‘Ambrosia Vessel 12’, 2016, The Future Perfect

Series: One of a kind

Part of Lindsey Adelman’s limited-edition Ambrosia Collection, this vessel reconciles the collection’s contrasts of femininity and power; fierceness and fragility. Made with navy glass overlaid with gold-plated brass chain, featuring oil lamps.

American lighting designer Lindsey Adelman’s exclusive collection for The Future Perfect is titled Ambrosia. The one-of-a-kind range - inspired by the ancient mythical world - features a delicately articulated series of vessels and oil lamps. True to the myth of Ambrosia, the collection bears a lyrical, transformational quality that also makes note of the story’s dark undertones (here represented in materials such as leather and rope). The collection is one of the designer’s most idiosyncratic and texturally rich, with a material palette that includes brass chain, white porcelain, leather and molten glass.

About Lindsey Adelman

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.
