A mosaic of mouth-blown glass lights up a stunning London home.
The Brief

The main entertaining space of this Belgravia residence required a custom ceiling luminaire that would create an elegant focal point while complementing the luxurious interior.

We were commissioned to develop and manufacture the interior designer’s vision for a lighting piece that would do just that.

  • Champagne gold metalwork
  • Mouth-blown glass shades
  • Frosted turned acrylic oval-shaped components
  • Knuckle joints
  • 2700K LEDs
The Design

The handmade light sculpture is made up of two separate frameworks that seamlessly blend together as one. Each section has two ceiling plates and an array of arms, all finished in polished champagne gold.

The luminaire’s 22 dish-like glass shades were mouth-blown in London and are a mosaic of different hues of purple and white. The depth and tone of each glass piece is slightly different, which adds to the overall beauty of the custom-made light fitting.

The LED light source is housed in an oval-shaped detail that sits either side of the shade and accommodates the natural variations of glass thickness. The crown is finished in the polished champagne gold and connects to the arm by a knuckle joint; the detail on the underside resembles an oyster’s pearl nestled within a delicate glass shell that emits a soft warm glow.
