Poliform UK are proud to announce a successful collaboration for Design Week 2018 with the innovative artisan lighting company Bomma. A window display will be illuminated with the soft elegant shapes and colours of the Phenomenon collection derived from the Greek word meaning to appear/shine. The basic geometric shapes are majestic in their simplicity – circle, triangle, rectangle and oval in sheer pastel colours.
As a contrast the Shibari collection will be hung in the central area, clear glass lighting orbs tied up with ropes inkeeping with the Japanese Kinbauk, the beauty of tight binding giving this collection a strong dominant presence.
Since the 19th century, Czech glassmakers produced monumental glass chandeliers for worldwide markets. With respect to this heritage, Bomma now introduces its own comprehensive collection of impressive glass lighting.
This debut series is composed of seven collections by Czech designers. Their diverse approaches create a rich palette of styles and techniques. From enormous glass bubbles blown without the use of wooden forms, to delicate crystal bound up in leather and strings, each design stretches the limits of the glassmaking craft. These styles reference geometric lighting fixtures, classic lamp shades transformed into cut crystal forms and inspirations from Chinese paper lanterns. The creative potential of designers, drawn to Bomma’s cutting-edge technology and ancient craft, blended the best of both worlds.
