The Robert A. M. Stern Architects collection of glass lighting, crafted by Remains Lighting Company, distills lighting archetypes from the classical canon - branched chandeliers, cylindrical and square lanterns, plafonniers and sconces - to a pure contemporary expression. Floating panes of thick flat glass tile are suspended from slender brass work frames by traditional hand-twisted chandelier wire; time-honored proportions and profiles are pared of needless decoration.

Over its forty-five-year history, Robert A. M. Stern Architects has established an international reputation as a leading design firm with wide experience in residential, commercial, and institutional work. The Robert A. M. Stern Collection was conceived to address the need for handsome, well-executed furnishings in the firm's own projects, and to make these designs available to the wider design-inspired community.
