Douglas Fanning

Blade Light, Contemporary Wall Sconce

United States, 2019



Craig LaCourt at 40 East End Avenue.


Medium: Blackened steel

Dimensions: Length - 120"

An ingenious sconce made of two intersecting wands of brushed bronze and glass encased LEDs, designed to rotate on a common axis. An impeccable work of industrial, functional beauty, the sconce serves as an excellent example of Fanning's deep respect for proportion and scale, for structure and detail.

Drawing from his knowledge of art and design (in addition to his architectural expertise), Douglas Fanning continually pushes the boundaries between form and physics to create clean, fluid, yet uncompromisingly daring pieces. In short, his multi-disciplined work harnesses a seamless creative dialogue between intellectual exploration and the organic realization of ideas.
