a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Lucie Koldova has designed the Capsula Pendant Light for Czech handcrafted glass lighting company Brokis.
Capsula pendant light is composed of two oval capsules of glass when external absorbs the internal and by permeating each other they complete compact form.
The concept is visualized by two convex capsules one overlapping the another and so merged into one single form which reminds an inspiration of nature, shapes of cells or plant seeds.
The combination of outer shell of crystal clear glass and internal capsule of coloured glass creates exciting tension of forms and optical 3D effect.
Capsula light sculpture is gently fixed together by a tubular light source connected with small wooden side bases and the effect is emphasized by blending the colored core into a crystal clear outer bubble.
