How do I install your Light Objects?

We have designed each Light Object to be easily installed by a licensed electrician and the installation guide can be easily downloaded from the Light Object page in the website.

Please notice that THE ARMS ARE NOT ADJUSTABLE AND CANNOT BE MOVED unless otherwise stated. Please don’t try to adjust the arms! It’s dangerous to the internal wiring, and also we fine-tune the balance and geometry of the fixtures in our studio before shipping so that they look perfectly balanced when installed.

How do I clean my light object?

To avoid damaging the finish, clean the fixture only when it is cool to the touch. Use something soft, like a feather duster or microfiber cloth, for the armature. For safety’s sake and to protect the stability of its installation, do not spin the fixture when cleaning. The branching armatures cannot be adjusted.


Use an additive-free liquid glass cleaner. We suggest spraying the cleaner directly onto a cloth to avoid damaging and oxidizing the fixture’s metal finish. Please be gentle and make sure not to put weight on the fixture.


Use a microfiber cloth for brass or bronze shades. Do not use glass cleaner or abrasives of any kind on any metal surface. We recommend that tarnished metals be professionally cleaned.

Polished Metal

Clean polished metal or polished stainless with a damp cloth. Avoid commercial or heavy-duty polishes or waxes, as they can scratch or damage the finish.
