Design Daily: Sculptural Pendant Light by NeidhardtAuthor:Sarah Virginia White
The best part of my job is running across a beautiful design, and then discovering that it’s made by a talented group on our home team—Californians, that is. That’s what happened with this RPD02 pendant from Neidhardt, a Redwood City lighting company founded by Frank Neidhardt and Karen Moffeit in 1992.
The industrial fluorescent bulbs and brushed aluminum casing get a makeover from the open, organic-feeling construction of the octagonal pendant. While it makes a statement as a single hovering light, the design truly shines when clustered in groups, as in the lobby image, top, or the open space of a library, below.
While I’m a fan of the gold or silver brushed-metal finishes, you can spot the design in lovely red or emerald (so 2013) and a variety of sizes for specific installations. (In addition to its stock designs, Neidhardt also manufactures items for designers, architects and companies throughout the US, so they offer a slew of options for customizing fixtures.) It’s also a testament to the versatile design that it looks equally at home in a Mad Men-era lobby as a book-filled library.
