Bec Brittain has added four dynamic lighting designs to her eponymous collection of geometric chandeliers, rope-inspired jewelry, and assorted novelties. Released in May, the pieces pair opaque glass with Brittain’s trademark angular hardware. “I wanted to soften the light but multiply it at the same time,” says the designer. “It is all about playing with reflection.”

Echo, for example, is a diamond-shaped chandelier (from $13,950) with internal gray or bronze mirrors that reflect the light generated by LED tubes. Vise consists of a clawlike metal structure that clasps a handblown glass pendant, which is available in various colors including the shown double-fade option ($12,200), while Helix merges LED tubes and metal hardware in either a hanging mobile (starting at $5,100) with two marble or granite counterweights or a floor lamp ($5,500) with a granite or marble base. And Brittain’s Maxhedron with Tessellated Mirror, which is produced by the New York–based lighting company Roll & Hill (three sizes priced from $13,500 to $16,500), has etched mirrors that cast patterns of light on nearby walls. Maxhedron with Tessellated Mirror is a spin-off of the designer’s Maxhedron chandelier, which launched in 2011 and resembles a constellation when lit.

The hardware for all four lighting pieces is available in several finishes, including oil-rubbed bronze, brushed brass, and satin black nickel.
