It is said that the highwire act is the art of living life to the extreme. If that's the case, then Highwire Large Pendant Light is a tribute to that art, a physical representation of the extraordinary.
Highwire Large Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus is inspired by the silhouette of famed French aerialist Philippe Petit on his wire. The “balance bar” is wrapped in leather or suede and can be tilted along its axis.
- Captured states of motion
