About

Zipper 8 Lighting

Zipper 8 Lighting was born at Allison's living room coffee table in 2011. Born and bred in New York City and friends since the age of five, we have been making and creating things together for a long time.

Our designs are deeply influenced by our city: its textures, patterns, materials. We design lights with dramatic flair and architectural resonance, often using unexpected materials to create different surfaces and textures. Allison has a background in architecture, and Elizabeth in theatrical costume design, so we see our asthetic as a result of this combined experience.

Your unique Zipper 8 Lighting light is hand crafted by the two of us in our tiny Manhattan studio, which functions as a design lab, manufacturing plant and shipping facility. Some days you'll find us scouring bookstores for old books and maps and marveling at our city's architecture, other days you'll find us assembling lights in the studio or designing new products together. We always break for a pot of tea, and for a snuggle with Basel, our security dog and product tester.

We hope our lights will engage and surprise our customers, as they pass from our hands to your rooms.

Enjoy!
Allison and Elizabeth

Cleaning Our Lights

To clean the Manhasset collection lights, use a dry cloth and wipe down from top to bottom. Don't worry about pressing down on the petals, they will bounce back into place when you are finished.

To clean the Dakota collection lights, use a can of compressed air to gently blow the dust off. You can buy a can of compressed air at any office supply store or online.

For the Beaumont collection, you probably won't find that your light is collecting much dust, but if you do need to clean it simply use a can of compressed air to gently blow the dust off. You can buy a can of compressed air at any office supply store or online.
