The 5V LED strip is contained within a sealed tempured glass tube balanced vertically on a brass frame. An etched brass sheet acts as a decorative element which diffuses the light emitted but also acts as part of the electrical circuit, conducting a current to the LED strip.
The brass sheet also acts as a counter balance stabilizing the glass envelope that projects over it’s only support, defining the extent of the cantilever.
