EITHER/OR PENDANT AT INTRO LA 2019

Initiated in 2013, the INTRO series invites a select group of designers and brands to present their work in a non-traditional format that prizes intimacy over scale. Eschewing the conventions of the trade show, INTRO is arranged as a holistic design-space, integrating a diverse series of installations into a cohesive interior.

Either/Or Pendant is the second installment of the award-winning Either/Or lighting series.

EITHER/OR AT REFORM

Either/Or collection is on view at the Reform showroom. The austere yet playful lights perfectly compliment Reform's line of custom-made carpentry kitchens in a single-story open space building from the 1940s with 18-foot vaulted ceilings, white painted wooden post and fully exposed beam structure.

INTERVIEW / PAUL CHAN: UNCOMMON BEAUTY IN COMMON THINGS.

EC: Your lighting series, Either/Or, encourages an emotional interaction between individuals and their lighting source. What do you hope that users will take away from this interaction?

PC: I hope this light will inspire a sense of play, give people back the curiosity they had as children, the instinct to touch, to give everyday objects a new perspective. As technology advances, design objects look more and more generic. the inviting form of the Either/Or light entices people to knock it around a little bit, have fun with it, kind of like flipping through the pages of a good book or the touch of a cool glass on a hot day.
