The unity of craft and glamour – master metalsmithing and sparkle – that’s the story of Synchronicity by Hubbardton Forge. It’s the modern retelling of an ancient tale, of Hephaestus and Aphrodite, of inspired skill and breathtaking beauty.
It all started with our design team exploring the world of crystals. They saw crystal-drenched chandeliers. Missing were nuances of texture, craft…and there wasn’t focus on the individual crystals. The designs they dreamt up would showcase crystals like fine jewels. Each crystal would be cradled. The placement of each would be intentional. Craftsmanship shares an equal stage. The forging of metal, the curving and shaping of steel, the design inspiration and the thoughtful engineering behind each piece is evident.
Armed with design ideas that even at their early stages foreshadowed something truly unique, a decision was made to take one of the most exciting steps forward in Hubbardton Forge’s 40-year history. A new line, Synchronicity by Hubbardton Forge, would be introduced to focus on crystal, artisanal glass and other delicate materials and at the heart of it all, fine crafting that still relies on age-old techniques paired with the latest technology.
The new line brings in fine ingredients like hand-poured Vermont artisanal glass for the Solstice Pendant and Sconce. A partnership with Swarovski incorporates crystals into many of Synchronicity’s designs, including the Courbé and Courbé Duet, where the world will see for the first time the new Swarovski Strass Wave Cut crystals – exclusive to Synchronicity – to create stunning new lighting designs.
Welcome to a new world of luxury lighting.
In 2018, our designers resume the exciting interplay by bringing you an evolution of their vision. Picking up where last year’s inspiration left off, our new Synchronicity collection has a distinctly emboldened edge. Bewitching and rebellious, Synchronicity takes center stage.
