The Kiss lamp layers and contrasts pressed, mirrored and blown glass into one shade.
Manufactured in an industrial glass making factory, Kiss utilizes an assortment of ancient glass-crafting techniques including pressed glass, blown glass and mirrorizing finishes. The finished design produces both an upward and downward light distribution.
The complex components are layered together to create what Atecnica describes as 'a large harmonious glowing sphere'. The upper portion of the sphere features an intricate overlay of diamond shaped and ribbed patterns in clear glass while the lower portion features a metalized reflector that appears silver on the outside with a warm, golden glow on the inside.
Designed by English artist Stephen Johnson in his third collaboration with Artecnica, the versatile Kiss is available as a pendant and table light.
