When it comes to lighting, Davis is high on the Drop pendant fixture from Anta (shown here in a Semple Brown project); it's one of his all-time favorites. “It's such a cool design and is about as stripped down as you can find without just hanging a bulb from a socket,” he says. Made in Germany, it has a distinctive teardrop-shaped glass diffuser and a matte-chrome housing. The 3-inch-wide-by-6½-inch-long fixture is carried by lighting showrooms. Anta; www.anta.de.
