With a suitably grand gesture, fit to grace a large dining table or expanded entryway, Sofie Refer has created a dramatic bouquet of light. Apiales 18, the larger model in Nuura's collection, features that number of elegantly mouth-blown glass globes. Gathered and held together, they resemble flowers on individual "stalks," finished in a choice of golden Brush Brass or the smooth Satin Black, that create an eye-catching bloom of illumination.

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.”
