Nuura designer Sofie Refer has a knack for drop-dead lighting effects and, with this dazzling geometric stunner, she once again scores a knockout. Composed from a dozen individual lights on a grid of sublimely pale gold metal, Liila's mouth-blown globes are offered in either patterned clear optic glass or milky opal glass. With the former, the effect is all sparkly reflections while the latter yields a subtle glow 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.”
