A luxurious fusion of traditional glassmaking techniques, decorative laser cut cast acrylic and modern led technology
We are both glassmakers and lighting designers; inspiration for this new design came from wishing to reinstate the traditional craft-based technique of hot glass to a utterly bespoke contemporary process rather than that of mass production. We further wished to combine this singular material with the emerging LED cob technology, even though we were ultimately hiding the light source from view. We wished to use the unique properties of variable thickness optical glass and experiment with the interplay between two interactive glass surfaces, natural and integral light and ultimately explore a luxury aesthetic.
Each individual pendant light can be viewed as a unique bespoke object, each subtly different from the next. The laser-cut acrylic detail to the centre creates focus and further enhances the light source; emulating the same material properties of the main body yet offering precision, detail, and durability; not properties readily associated with glass on such a small scale. There are three variables of the intricate central section and the pendant has been designed to operate as mainly a stand-alone design or within a multi-array feature chandelier. Future design considerations will include a wall light and a desk top version.
