Imitating swallows delicately poised on branches or wires, Neri & Hu have created a design that animates any space they are chosen for. Brushed brass bodies support hand-blown glass spheres, which in turn delicately poise on black powder coated steel branches. A dimmer is also included, allowing the user to tailor the atmosphere to their desires.
