A series of glass blown light pendants, with mesmerising and bulbous shapes, in which the main role is played by the reflection created through the tactile structured glass surface. When light hits the surface of mouth-blown glass, every shape or line becomes visible in its reflection and provide a unique spectacle on the environment.

For this series, the studio has intensively researched the mesmerising effects of light through imprints of different shapes and structures in glass. Various constructions and grid frameworks are developed to create the most striking light effects. Coloured projections appear on the surrounding which resemble cloudy skies, rippling water or morning dew creating a soothing, almost hypnotic effect. The studio feels the urge to create design that brings well-being, sensitivity and colour into the interior.

The round and convex structure in the glass is created at the moment suprême when the red-hot, almost liquid glass shape is guided by the designers and pressed into the brutalist steel construction. A new bulbous pattern appears in the glass, being the soft and tactile counterpart of the geometric grid framework. During this performance the combination of this imprint within the free formed glass bubble makes the piece unique and part of a family of forms.

The mouth blown glass seems almost untouched, with its distinct and clear polished edge. To let the glass shine, the studio developed a custom LED spot, which double serves as mounting bead, creating a floating combination of glass and light. The beam of light is projected almost invisibly on and through the structured glass surface. Centuries-old craftsmanship and contemporary LED technology and design are merged into the series GRID light.
