Each project owes its inspiration to geometry, which becomes materialized in the form of a unique composition of wooden blocks and thin metal rods. This geometric origin remains subtle and elegant. Only a skilled eye will discover the Star of David in the complex design of the Constellation ceiling lamp or spot the rotation of equilateral triangles in the Yuka floor lamp. The collection designers call it a hidden harmony, believing that it imperceptibly affects the reception of the projects.
Such a puzzle-like design requires a high precision of all components. Both wooden blocks and metal parts are carefully crafted by family-owned, local producers with a multi-generational tradition. Glass shades are mouth-blown in the Łużyce glassworks, of which history dates back to 1872. They are made of three-layer glass and finished with a special
chemical treatment that gives them a beautiful matt surface and velvet touch.
There are two wood finishes to choose from: natural oak and black oak. The first one is finished with oil wax. Together with the soft light of the milky shade it creates an extremely warm and tranquil composition. The second one is blackened and matt finished with visible wood grain. This timeless and classic finish emphasizes the minimalist design and exquisite quality of the products.
