Talisman Pendant is a strict arrangement of semi-precious stones that recalls fine details found on statues in the ancient city of Persepolis. Agate, Jasper, or jade beads are pierced by finely fluted pins, affixing them to a leather-bound structure.
APPARATUS is a New York based interdisciplinary design studio that explores the relationship of lighting, furniture and objects in their environments. Predicated on the modernist principle of gesamtkunstwerk or total work of art, fully articulated collections reveal each piece as an artefact from a singular vision -each imprint referencing the historical and cultural mood summoned by a holistic emotional landscape. APPARATUS creates each piece with a devotion to the rigour of small studio craftsmanship, centring the importance of the human hand in lending soul to an object. Sensual materials such as marble, suede, horsehair, lacquer and porcelain are combined with patinated brass to create the studio’s distinctive catalog. Underpinning every piece, whether it be a light fixture or a chair, is a deft balance between mechanisation and the hand-made, striving equally for the contradictions of perfection and the beautiful irregularity of humanity. APPARATUS galleries in New York, Los Angeles, and Milan each communicate the studio’s singular design ethos while also providing a distinctive, immersive experience informed by its location.The studio was founded in 2012 by Gabriel Hendifar and Jeremy Anderson. In 2021, the studio expanded its production to a dedicated factory in Brooklyn, where all pieces are hand-finished and assembled.

Additional information: in order to achieve this particular custom Tarnished Silver finish, we prep the fixture’s raw brass base in our production facility and then work with a local partner to first nickel plate, then fully plate the fixture in actual silver. The fixture is then sealed with a tinted lacquer for a protected and permanent finish with a warmer, layered tone. +35% for tarnished silver finish applies.
