A new series of pendant lights and table lamps, in which the leading role is played by the light, which is projected through the mouth-blown glass objects.

When light shines through the surface of blown glass, every shape or line becomes visible in its reflection. Structures on the surface of the bell, but also the imperfections and the difference in layer thickness of the glass becomes visible and provide a unique spectacle on the environment.

For this series, the studio has intensively researched the effects of imprints of different shapes and structures in glass. Various constructions and moulds are developed to create the most striking light effects. Projections appear on the surrounding which resemble cloudy skies, rippling water or morning dew creating a soothing, almost hypnotic effect.

The structure in the glass is created at the moment suprême, when the red-hot, almost liquid bubble is on one side pressed into the brutalist steel construction. Directed by the designers, the right combination of temperature, air pressure and gravity leave an imprint of the structure in the glass. 

A new bulbous, soft shape appears, being the counterpart of the structured framework, but with its own freeform in between.

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, leaving a soft and mesmerising effect on its surrounding.
