help! does anyone know where these lamps are from?


I admit it. I am a design stalker. I walk by a row of brownstones on 15th Street every day on my way to work, and have become officially obsessed with trying to find out where these gorgeous hanging lamps are from. They are hanging in a first-floor hallway that you can see from the sidewalk. You have to forgive my poor photo — I snuck up the stairs the other morning and snapped it with my iPhone. It was impossible to get closer or not have the street reflection in the window. Still, you can see their shape: almost cloud-like spheres that look like they’re made of paper or a light cloth. I’ve looked in all the usual places (Velocity, Unica, DWR) and have had no luck finding them. Do you recognize them? Please play design sleuth and help me find these lamps. (My next step is to leave a note on the door. Do you think that would work or is it just creepy?) — Angela M.
