Item Details
Beautiful light installation of Line Lamp by Elish Warlop at Hilton Brooklyn New York. The Line Drawn Lamp is a series of brass tubes, curved and slotted, and connected by a cloth cord. The slots hold LED's that shine back against the wall. Each bar can be adjusted, to change the density of light and shadow along the wall. As they are moved, each adjustment records an interaction, a temporary record of the last individual to engage. Like that of a sketch, where the line is an expression of the motion of our hand.

Meet the Creator

Elish Warlop Design Studio

Brooklyn, NY

Drawing on myriad skills honed throughout a diverse career, Brooklyn-based lighting and furniture designer Elish Warlop seeks to explore the paradox of motion within stillness. This idea manifests itself in her creations, which on first glance appear simple and elegant, but on closer inspection reveal more complex construction meant to draw the viewer in.

A licensed architect with a B.A. from Cornell University, Warlop garnered two AIA awards for Studio B Architects (a Colorado based architecture firm) where she began her career before moving on to construction management and her own company, EFW Construction.

Looking to take the next step in her career trajectory she decided to pursue an MFA in furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2010. With this newfound knowledge she launched Elish Warlop Design Studio and set about merging creativity and design with construction and experimentation.

As Warlop moves from research and sketches to model making and workable prototypes, new ideas and directions tend to emerge along the way. She finds great joy in this process and trusts it to guide her where she needs to go.
