American lighting brand Roll & Hill will showcase brass lights that imitate the shapes of unfurling plants and musical instruments at an exhibition in New York that opens later this week.

The exhibition will include the Gridlock series of lamps by London designer Philippe Malouin, which are made up of thousands of brass parts.

The brass sticks are formed into three-dimensional grids similar to structural trusses and stacked up to form the shades. Ceiling, wall and pendant versions will be shown for the first time in the USA.

Jason Miller's latest design for Roll & Hill is named Fiddlehead, referring to the furled stems of young fern plants.

A hand-blown glass ball is cupped by a brass arm that either cantilevers from a ceiling rose, hangs as a pendant or protrudes from a wall mount.

Influenced by the shape of brass musical instruments, the collection of lamps by Paul Loebach ranges from a single conical pendant to an inverted candelabra of up to six lights suspended from brass tubes.

Brooklyn designer Bec Brittain has created two pieces for the brand.

Frosted glass crystals appear to grow from metal tubes connected with miter joints into hexagons to create Brittain's Seed series of lamps.

"This will be the biggest show we've done to date," said Roll & Hill CEO and creative director Jason Miller. "The size of the venue will allow us to show the scale and breadth of our collection in a way that is almost impossible otherwise."
