About Drape Arm 1 Sconce
Glass shaped by hand
The glass shapes of the Drape Arm 1 Sconce are formed by hand, allowing them to be slightly imperfect to express their handmade origins. The “dipped” glass options feature an irregular, open mouth, created by double-dipping the piece into the molten glass crucible, followed by breaking the piece from the pipe and fire-polishing the opening – a purposeful expression of craft and the act of glassblowing. The “textured” glass diffusers have no opening. Their surface is frosted and features a subtle pattern of lines etched into the glass for a moody and classic look.
Movement and functionality
The hinged arm of the Drape Arm 1 Sconce is an example of the high standard of quality SkLO brings to its metalwork. Smooth in operation, the hinged arm elevates this sconce beyond the typical wall light. The field-adjustable cord means many proportions and installations are possible. From reading nooks to bedside locations to restaurant table lighting, the Drape Arm 1 Sconce can bring a new dimension to many different interiors.
The possibilities of simplicity
The Drape collection is an investigation into the potential behind the idea of a simple cord-suspended glass pendant that displays the quality and variation of SkLO handblown glass. It begins, necessarily, with the basic Drape Pendant itself. But from there, minimal additions are made – opportunities to enhance the structure, scale, and design of the diverse series comprising the Drape collection, including the Drape Circle, Drape Arm, Drape Skirt, and many more.
