Each year DOOMA curate a collection of lighting designs complemented spaces with a variety of modern design concepts. Below is breakdown of the curated objects we have chosen for our first series of lighting in this blog post.
Cerine Sconce series for Trueing
Lighting is taken to a new level with this contemporary take on industrial chain lighting. Made of hand-forged brass, the light bulb is encased in a brass cage and suspended from a chain that’s long enough to be positioned around any space with ease.
This chain lighting was in collaboration with trueing and launched at a Japanese sophisticated women apparel pas de Calais store located in Soho, Manhattan in 2019 as a collaboration that rhymes in terms of the design aesthetic.
Aiden Bowman and Josh Metersky, who created the Brooklyn Studio, drew inspiration for the designs from a variety of sources. Delicate golden chain necklaces, rough metal variants found in shipyards, and ornate designs found on the front of beaux-arts buildings are just a few examples.

This Brooklyn-based lighting-focused design studio was founded by two RISD grads Nicholas Ozemba and Felicia Hung. Rather than designing yet another boring luxurious lighting like chandelier for the premium market, In Common With has positioned its work solidly in the realm of approachable, making custom lighting more accessible than ever before. The duo's hand-pinched clay hues, which are developed in partnership with ceramicists from Ohio to Brooklyn, are particularly appealing to us.
