Product Details

two apparatus synapse pendants


With the Synapse Large Pendant Light, Gabriel Hendifar floats an aged brass orb between two matte-finished translucent glass hemispheres in a triangular frame. The result—a seemingly magical process of transformation and creation.

Inspired by the mechanics of neural synapses, Synapse Large Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus is composed of two hand-molded glass domes that require a 4-part firing process. A brass orb floats in transit between the two hemispheres.
