The String Light series was inspired by the designer traveling on trains and seeing the electrical wires that connect the pylons. As the train moves at a high speed, the parallel electrical strings begin to stand out, which Anastassiades translated into lights that are like linear drawings where you can demarcate and divide your space however you want. Create endless combinations with multiple fixtures and accessories to design a truly unique masterpiece.

The classic Edison-style squirrel cage lamp is reincarnated here as a modern socket and cord-style LED pendant light. The Alva Pendant Light features a powerful downward-firing LED that is smartly hidden within the "socket" then combined with a solid "bulb" of pure optic crystal. Intricately detailed "filaments" are laser-etched into the crystal for a visually intriguing light fixture.
