Light and easy

Lindsey and Ian Adelman, Brooklyn (USA)

Lindsey Adelman constructs stunning chandeliers from tubes and joints, arranging them into one-of-a-kind light mobiles. One such creation hangs in her living room, while others have been published in design magazines around the world. Unlike most artists, Adelman is not shy about her process: For those wishing to make similar fixtures, the designer has supplied a set of instructions on her website ( for crafting lamps from readily available parts. Given her DIY ethos, perhaps it is no wonder, then, that Adelman was drawn to USM Haller modular furniture, which itself is a system of ball joints and metal rods that can be assembled into customized storage and display cases. For her home on Prospect Park West, in Brooklyn’s Park Slope, she and her husband, Ian, opted for an all-white collection of low cabinets that create a horizontal landscape across much of the living area. The details fell to Ian, the lead digital designer at The New York Times, who mapped out the specific dimensions that would accommodate a vinyl record collection and art supplies. “Ian and I put our ideas together,” Lindsey says, “and that is how we ended up with what we have. It is very unobtrusive; it melts away.”
