The ICRAVE Ignis Pendant was inspired by the same design principles that make Cerno and ICRAVE well suited to collaborate. Honesty, simplicity, elemental, timeless and quality are words that sit at the core of both companies’ design ethos. Each fixture was reduced to its essential parts – frame and shade – highlighting the interplay of the components, and accentuating the clean lines of the form.
Founded in 2009, the roots for Cerno were established many years earlier. The founding trio - Nick Sheridan, Bret Englander and Dan Wacholder - grew up together in Laguna Beach and dreamed of one day putting all their cumulative artistic and engineering skills together into one creative endeavor. That endeavor became Cerno, an industrial design and manufacturing company that creates modern LED lighting fixtures and furniture.
