Jeremy Anderson Unveils Futuristic Illuminations at Gallery FUMI

At this year’s Design Miami/, New York-based Jeremy Anderson, designer and cofounder of Apparatus, has unveiled his latest body of work at Gallery FUMI: a set of three totemic floor lamps accompanying an installation titled Space Relics, which feature three similarly conceived pendant lights suspended just off the ground. Through his ceramic practice, which he uses as a conduit to tap into the child-like play of making, assembling, and painting, Anderson shapes his lighting into anthropomorphic shapes and forms. Symbolically, the pieces are a reflection of our human condition – that is, individual entities that form a collective society.

The lights are made from clay and are adorned with illustrious accents, domed disc-shaped elements, and striped patterns that conjure up themes of space, or perhaps ideas of a utopian planet. LED strips and borosilicate glass contrast against the clay to create a new genre of lighting, a tangible realization of the imaginary world that Anderson envisions.
