Bec Brittain Shy Sconce 2', Customizable Brass Sconce

$2,780per item

About

The Shy light uses the spare beauty of thin LED tubes to define the edges of its shape; in this way the function of the piece is created by its form, and vice-versa. It is also inspired by crystalline structures, both by the shapes they take as well as their growth. The modular hardware that comprises the Shy light can be reconfigured in a myriad of different ways, taking new shapes according to what the space demands; like crystals each can be different while sharing the same structural foundation.

Customization Options

Standard Metal Finishes: Brushed Brass, Satin Nickel, Oil-rubbed Bronze, Nickel-Brass Contrast, Polished Nickel Glass Diffusers for the LED bulbs are available in White Sandblast Glass or Two-way Mirror: additional $665 per bulb Special Order Metal Finishes: Polished Brass, Medium Antique Brass, Dark Pewter, Polished Black Nickel, Polished Copper available for a 10% premium Sconces include a low voltage transformer for remote located installation

About the Designer

Self-taught designer Bec Brittain (b. 1980) grew up surrounded by creative minds: Her mother is an artist, her father had a woodworking business, and her paternal grandparents and step-grandfather were architects.

In 2011, after serving as a design director for Lindsey Adelman, Brittain founded her own studio in Brooklyn and created the SHY light. The piece, whose name derives from the initials of her architect grandmother, Sarah Hitchcock Yerkes, was an immediate success, launching Brittain’s career.

The designer moved her studio to Manhattan in 2016 and opened an adjacent showroom in 2017. She makes all her products in New York with the help of local artisans and fabricators. Her latest project, Aries, which was presented by 1stdibs in a 2018 exhibition during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, is an ode to Olafur Eliasson’s set design for the ballet Tree of Codes.
