Molecular Illumination

Loving Lindsey Adelman's light fixture designs! They are very retro contemporary, and each fixture contains the highest quality of material and artistry.

After Lindsey Adams Adelman completed her BA in English from Kenyon College, she worked for the Smithsonian Institution where she discovered Industrial Design when meeting an exhibition fabricator carving French fries out of foam. Inspired by the thought of an activity like this passing for a real job, she went on to earn her BFA in I.D. from the Rhode Island School of Design. After graduation, she worked for Resolute Lighting in Seattle before returning to her native New York to work for David Weeks Studio. In 2000, Weeks and Adelman founded Butter, a design studio focusing on affordable products for the home. In 2005, they said good-bye to Butter and Adelman set off to work on her own projects, including launching a successful line of hand-blown custom chandeliers as well as spending endless hours making intricate, meticulous drawings with human hair. The work has been included in the Cooper-Hewitt Design Triennial and Design Miami and has received awards from the ICFF Editors, ID, Blueprint, and the Altoids Curiously Strong Designer Awards. It has been published in The New York Times, The World of Interiors, Met Home, Interior Design, Paper, Harper’s Bazaar, and American Craft, as well as in the books New Designers: Americas, Dish, and Brooklyn Design among others.
