In Greek mythology, Ariadne is known as the mistress of labyrinths. She's also associated with weaving and in some traditions, she hanged herself. This jointed lamp—Baldessari's Arianna—was inspired the goddess.
With the fixture, we're mostly focusing on the weaving part of Ariadne's, well, thread. The lamp looks much like an old yarn swift, an antique contraption used to wind yarn that could expand and contract as needed. The cherry wood structure surrounds an expandable pendant lamp, and is a lovely resurrection of both a bygone tool and a classic tale.
