Inspiration and innovation converge in this striking pendant from the Blossi collection from Denmark's Nuura. Sparked by the autumnal golden light, designer Sofie Refer's scheme features a rounded, mouth-blown glass shade with a gold metal fitting, giving the light a soft, soul-warming glow. That nuanced aesthetic coexists with the fixture's state-of-the-art technology, encompassing a specially developed LED disc for up to 50,000 hours of beautiful reflected light. A model of efficient versatility as well as elegant simplicity, Blossi 1 is apropos for both residential and contract installation.

Nuura is an emerging Danish lighting brand that creates eclectic collections that each revolve around an updated chandelier. Cofounder Sofie Refer (alongside Nadia Lassen and Peter Østerberg) says, “For me, chandeliers are a beautiful symbol of generosity, a piece of art. That is why I always design a family of products around a chandelier.” Inspired by the fabled Nordic light, the company’s offerings meld time-honored artisanal techniques like mouth-blown glass with state-of-the-art technology.
Whether is is Anoli’s elegant drop motif inspired by a rainy day during autumn or Blossi’s futuristic domed shapes, each grouping extends to pendants, table lamps and wall fixtures. “I like repetitions a lot,” Sofie says. “There are repetitions everywhere in the nature, and they just bring certain calmness to a room, connecting things.”
