Lighting It Up

  • Samantha Brooks

Modern lines and traditional craftsmanship merge in the recent collaboration between the 1-year-old, New York–based furniture brand Studio Van den Akker and the 600-year-old, Murano, Italy–based glass maker Seguso. The eight-piece collection includes five stunning new lighting pieces, as well as vases and a platter. The Matteo lantern ($5,375) is a 35-inch-long pendant featuring a handblown, light-diffusing shade, and the Nico table lamp ($4,525) has a vessel-shaped body with three layers of glass. All of the items are available through Studio Van den Akker’s Manhattan showroom.
