A Contrast in Finishes
With contrasting materials like aged brass, horsehair, and etched glass, the Horsehair Pendant is a master class in texture and tonality. Combined these elements create a delightfully unexpected effect.
Horsehair Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus represents a robust study of material that evokes the grace and strength of its equine contributor. Wefts of horsehair are combined with brass and etched glass, implying a structural, weight-bearing function for the coarse hair.
