The term "mobile" was coined by Marcel Duchamp to describe the kinetic artworks of fellow artist Alexander Calder. Like Calder's creations, Hendifar's Trapeze 2 Mobile Pendant inspires us to see the intertwining relationship of all the elements in play—metal, porcelain, space, and light.
Trapeze 2 Mobile Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus is inspired by the tension and dynamics of the circus act. This series of chandeliers cantilevers glowing bowls in movable formations on the ceiling or wall, creating a soft illumination and graphic silhouette. Available with either brass or hand-cast porcelain bowls.

Founded in 2012, Apparatus creates bespoke furnishings and lighting that revolt against the corporatization of design. The company’s distinctive catalog is created with sensual materials like marble, suede, horsehair, lacquer, and porcelain combined with patinated brass. Embracing a tradition of studio craftsmanship, each piece is hand-finished and assembled in New York.
