Inspired by what she calls "the generosity of nature," Danish designer Sofie Refer responds with breathtaking abundance of her own in the marvelous 13 Chandelier from the Nuura series Anoli. Thirteen droplet-shaped shades in mouth-blown glass and hand-painted in a delicate golden color make a luminous statement-piece that summons her original inspiration of rain falling in the warm Nordic light. Enhanced with complementing fittings of light gold metal, the chandelier's effect is at once subtle and spellbinding—perfect to grace a dining table or float over a sideboard.

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.”
