CONSTANTIN by Andrea Claire Studio
Andrea Claire Studio is the natural outgrowth of Andrea Claire Lighting. An artisan and fabricator based in Williamsburg Brooklyn, Andrea has produced an extensive collection of handcrafted, custom-made, “green” lighting dating back to 2004.
CONSTANTIN, made its debut at the 2011 ICFF, and is the first of several innovative Andrea Claire Studio designs currently in development. Using a refined taxonomy of shapes, materials, and hanging systems, our design approach is collaborative: we create chandeliers, floor lamps, sconces, and table lighting of the exact size and finish to conform to your distinctive aesthetic sensibilities. Our proprietary forms of bamboo stretched over metal frames and armatures are available in brushed brass, polished nickel, and hand-rubbed bronze.
Andrea Claire Studio takes its inspiration from the artist’s body of abstract paintings. Abstraction acts as a gauntlet, a challenge, a visual gambit that that challenges us to redefine and re-imagine space and its objects or expressions. Influenced by Isamu Noguchi, CONSTANTIN lifts these guiding principles off the canvas and advances them into a line of singular lighting concepts.
All pieces are sculptural, green, handmade and original, with tailor-tooled components deployed with an architect’s attention to detail. (Claire also works as an architect.) Inquiries regarding customized design options are welcome.
