Wanna hang with this light: Mr. Cooper

Categories: Modern Decor + Objects

“Inspired by the old tin can telephone or ‘lovers telephone’ this spun copper pendant light pays tribute to a time gone by. In 1664 Robert Hooke experimented with sound transmission through a distended wire. Mr. Cooper celebrates this era of invention and observations. The shades are designed to be hung in a cluster, cascading from a single ceiling plate and hooking to various points using copper crimps. The swage lines reference the ridges of a tin can as well as adding rigidity and detail to the form.” More.

Yes that title was a pun on the popular ’90s sitcom “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.”

Nestled among round-up posts this week will be a series of things that I happened to earmark as something cool to post about in 2011, but I never got to. Out with the old and in with the new! I’m gonna clean out my “to post about” list so I can come atcha fresh in the new year!
