Designer Sofie Refer says her primary inspirations are the Nordic light and the generosity of nature–and the wondrous chandelier version in her Anoli series for Danish house Nuura seemingly reflects both of those imperatives. The trio of droplet-shaped shades in mouth-blown glass and hand-painted in a delicate golden color charmingly allude to her original vision of rain drops reflecting nature's luminescence. Enhanced with fittings of light gold metal, the trio of shades can be positioned in close proximity or spread out in sequence, either way producing an incomparable lighting effect in any setting.

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.”
