Transient images of the eternal

The name chosen for this BOMMA collection, inspired by basic geometric shapes, comes from the Greek word for ‘appearances.’ According to Plato’s teachings, phenomena are mere transient images of eternal and perfect forms and thus inherently unreal. A fitting name for objects made of glass – a material that is both rigid and flexible, as well as strong, yet fragile. These lighting fixtures, in an array of fascinating sizes, are hand-blown into custom-made forms that combine both clear and colored glass. The color gradient is created by being gradually blown into the molten mass, as if breathing life into this collection. The flawlessly smooth shape of the crystal light is accented by a sophisticated polished mounting, highlighting a perfect blend of materials and aesthetics.
