14.5 is a random configuration of five 14 pendants hung from a round canopy. The pendants are designed to hang in a random configuration at times clustering and grouping together and others trailing off. The result is an ambient chandelier or field of light. The pendant drop lengths on this chandelier are adjustable up to the specified maximum.
The 14 is an articulated, seamed cast glass sphere with a frosted cylindrical void that houses a low voltage lamp. Individual pendants are visually quite subtle, but gain tremendous strength when multiplied and clustered in large groups.
