We’ve featured the work of Bay Area-based blacksmith Jon Sarriugarte before (see Lighting: Industrial Chandelier by Form & Reform), so we were interested to see that same light fixture transformed into an illuminated arboreal wreath at a dinner hosted by London-based phenom Yotam Ottolenghi. In town for a dinner at Camino in Oakland, Ottolenghi (who presides over a small empire of highly regarded restaurants in the UK) wove fronds of fennel through the fixture. For more information on the chandelier, go to Form & Reform.
