Product: Splendor in the Glass

The new Bryce Collection sheds light on repurposed industrial fittings´╗┐

ichael McHale, an entertainment lawyer turned designer, transforms experimentation into expertise.
McHale Designs is known for chandeliers that are whimsical and serendipitous. Industrial piping graced with swanky crystals mimics delicate icicles dripping from the masculine frame. The recent launch of The Bryce Collection (starting at $3800) reaffirms this splendid dichotomy of fragility and robustness, while achieving further refinement. Bryce Chandeliers are built with hand-milled aluminum pieces that bolt the frame together. The structure and function of these components replicate the parts used in the original McHale Chandeliers made from reclaimed elements. Yet the latest collection reaches new degrees of geometric precision and posh. All models in the Michael McHale Designs Chandeliers are available using Bryce Components, made-to-order in yellow brass, steel, and black finishes. In honor of the designer’s passed brother, whom the line is named after, 5% of all Bryce collection sales are donated to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Center for Colon Cancer.

Our readers will receive a 5% discount through February if is referenced.
