Stickbulb has unveiled its new collection of versatile LED pendants. Designed by RUX, the founding creative team behind Stickbulb, and named after the main branch of a tree, Bough marks an exciting development for the Long Island City-based lighting brand.
Featuring a Y-shaped connector that allows for the creation of dynamic forms at an unprecedented scale, Bough joins their growing collection of fixtures made from sustainable and historic pieces of wood including a new limited edition reclaimed Heart Pine from the demolished Pullman Couch Factory in Chicago.
"Branching forms are an obvious opportunity for a brand that makes light from wood, but it took us a long time to find the right kind of branch," commented RUX Founder and Stickbulb Co-Founder Russell Greenberg. "Bough is an organic system that grows from minimal pendants into more dynamic geometries at larger scales."
Central to the design of Bough is a Y-shaped friction-fit connector that joins three Stickbulbs together without the need for tools. Each arm of the welded steel connector is angled in two directions, setting in motion a subtle torquing effect that becomes visible when multiple units are connected in a series. Available in three sizes (Little, Middle and Big Bough), the single suspension fixtures each contain three Stickbulbs ranging in length from one-and-a-half to four feet. The triple-bulb design casts light evenly on surfaces and an adjustable ball-joint connection to the stem allows each fixture to be angled or held level.
Bough is available in a range of carefully considered wood types including reclaimed Heart Pine and Water Tower Redwood, sustainably sourced American Walnut and Maple, and Ebonized Oak in addition to a new limited edition reclaimed Heart Pine. Hardware finishes include White, Slate Grey, Matte Black, Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, Brushed Brass, Polished Brass, and Hand Blackened Steel as well as custom options.
