Working from the Janštejn Glassworks factory in the Czech Republic, Brokis' inspiring, designer lighting collections are made following Bohemian glassblowing tradition. Offering a beautiful range of hanging, floor, sconce and decorative lighting products, Brokis' designs are full of character and imagination. Brokis combines handblown glass with other refined materials, such as wood and manually pressed metal, in bold lighting compositions that push the boundaries of contemporary design.
Our pick: Knot (first picture below) Knot is a collection of stately pendant lights that appose two dramatically dissimilar materials. The design combines coarse natural fibre with smooth, transparent blown glass to arouse a contrast as striking as it is dignified. Full-bodied globes of varying shapes and sizes are penetrated by robust cords that seemingly pull the bottom of the glass inward for a bemusing plastic effect. The LED light source is housed in a handsome top hood, which, like the cord end cap, is fashioned in refined metal. The collection comprises four pendant lights of different shapes available in two sizes. Designed by Chiaramonte Marin.
