LIGHT IN SYMBIOSIS WITH NATURE
This spring, we exhibited our new lighting products at Euroluce 2019. Now, it’s time to introduce them in detail to you. The collections are called AWA and IVY, and they’re both inspired by nature.
The AWA collection was created for BROKIS by the Japanese designer Fumie Shibata. The creator of IVY is none other than BROKIS art director Lucie Koldova, who says she drew inspiration from the life-giving beauty of nature.
A ball of air wrapped in liquid is called ‘awa’ in Japanese.
This design sprung from the idea of creating lighting to resemble soft glass that has retained its shape after being inflated.
‘I hope it gives the impression of seeing a ball of air floating when
you look up’, says Fumie Shibata of her newest piece. ‘Another unique characteristic
of the design is that its wood and metal parts appear to be made of glass also,
as if they were corks holding the air in,’ she adds.
Size: large / medium
Glass: transparent, smoke grey, amber, and smoke brown
Body: wood (american walnut and european oak) / metal (copper and dural)
’Nature and its life-giving beauty and strength serve as the model for a unique lighting concept called Ivy. Just as the plant grows and climbs up the walls of a house, creating multiple images, Ivy offers a special system of modular components, thanks to which it can be used to achieve a highly innovative take on decorative lighting in both vertical and horizontal compositions,’ explains the designer, Lucie Koldova.
The collection feature three sizes in opal or smoke glass.
IVY offers variability, elegance, and precision craftmanship down to the smallest of details. This advanced-technology lighting concept is suitable for both commercial and residential applications.
To ensure ease of installation and maintenance, the IVY collection uses a connector similar to the one found in the Shadows, Shadows XL, Whistle, Puro, and Capsula collections.
