A lamp as precious as Murano glass, as irreverent as a rock opera: Bloom literally blooms in a scintillating and lavish crystal cascade. Bloom is a tubular polycarbonate framework entirely covered by a structure of tiny transparent polycarbonate double corolla flowers. The result is an industrially produced lamp but with all the forms and stylistic complexity of a unique handcrafted piece. A series of little lights located within the skeletal structure beams the light shafts through the petals to refract on their multi-faceted surfaces and multiply a thousand reflections. Available in the elegant transparency of crystal, matte white or black and in a sexy mix of pink and black, Bloom is a new way of interpreting a traditional lamp with that special added touch. A work of art that can furnish and fill a room all by itself, creating that atmosphere of "shining splendour".
