Bulb SR1 and SR2 are Sofie Refer’s tribute to the good old-fashioned incandescent light bulb, and through these lamps the Danish light artist has managed to combine the new and the old millennia. A modern classic has been born.
With its thick transparent glass, the shape references the first electric bulbs. Refer continues an elegant Nordic tradition, adding her own passion and feminine intrigue to the history of Danish lighting designs.
The small irregularities in the mouth-blown glass ensures that each and every pendulum is unique and adds to the story of the blower’s personal contribution to the process of creating a modern object using ancient techniques.
The larger Mega Bulb SR2 is available in different versions with gold or silver combined with transparent elements, giving rise to a range of fascinating combinations.
The Bulb pendant has received the following awards:
Chicago Athenaeum - Good Design Award 2001
Museum for Architecture and Design - Wallpaper Design Award 2006 for best lighting
