Apiales 9 Ceiling
Seemingly unfolding like stalks of a flower, Danish designer Sofie Refer includes a ceiling-mounted model in her Apiales chandelier collection for Danish label Nuura. Featuring 9 mouth-blown glass globes to gracefully spread the illumination, the fixture's metal arms stem from a matching specially-produced canopy. With its minimal depth, the chandelier offers great flexibility for placement, especially in rooms with lower ceiling height or in transitional spaces.

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.”
