The slip-cast porcelain forms of the lantern series float along a rigid brass structure.

Repeating spheres act as a counterpoint to the sizeable shades. A dimmer ball sits on the base.
Using a strict arrangement of semi-precious stones, Talisman 14 Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus recalls the fine details found on statues in the ancient city of Persepolis. Agate, jasper, or jade beads are pierced by finely fluted pins, affixing them to a leather-bound brass structure.
