Consider Axis from Juniper, the fully-integrated design and manufacturing studio in Brooklyn, acclaimed for its architectural take on lighting. Wall Sconce designed by Miren Lasnier pairs parallel angled bronze segments that contain an LED light source in the central channel they form, with evenly glowing illumination radiating outward. Offered in sizes from 1-4 feet long and in a variety of fine finishes, the fixture can be mounted on a wall, in a hallway or to create accent lighting—melding a modern industrial feeling with solidly engineered contemporary luxury.
“Each collection is highly conversational and a big part of that conversation is rooted in the product's function,” says Shant Madjarian of Brooklyn-based Juniper Design. Shant left a successful career in finance to explore his creative side and hasn’t looked back since. “I am especially fascinated by the nostalgia and storyline told by the iconic design objects of the 20th century,” he recently told the design publication New York Spaces. “It is quite literally the history of human progress told in the form of beautiful objects. I was inspired and wanted to be one small piece of that storyline.”
Early on, Shant crossed paths with independent designer David Irwin and together they conceived the breakthrough M Lamp, an industrially influenced design that set the tone for future projects. At the same time came the collaboration with Peter Bristol on the Thin series, which positioned the company as a risk-taker in matters of design and engineering. “That being said, we don't see ourselves as pioneers. Brooklyn has exploded over the past five years as a center of design,” he adds. “Everyone has their unique edge. It is an exciting time for the design industry.”
