Crystal Shell Pendant lighting by Shakúff

Dezeen Showroom: the Crystal Shell Pendant is a clam-shaped addition to New York-based studio Shakúff's hanging lighting range.

Shakúff's Crystal Shell Pendant is "reminiscent of a clam" and was informed by the carapaces of sea creatures found among the sand.

"Distinctly personal, this collection was inspired by founder Joseph Sidof's childhood spent foraging the beaches of Northern Israel for treasures to create with," said Shakúff. "This foraging of natural materials continues to inspire each one of Shakúff's collections."

The design is made from leftover pyrex glass, which is crushed into a ball and then blown so that it becomes a cymbal-like shape.

The process results in a crackled finish across the glass discs and waves around their edges.

"Reminiscent of a clam, the Crystal Shell pendant holds a treasure of pearly remnant glass within and is fastened at the top by a single screw and suspended by coaxial wire," said Shakúff.

The pendants can be hung together in multiples configurations from one fixture, and suspended at different heights to create unique arrangements.
