Design firm Grupa Studio and manufacturer Global Lighting offer 360 degrees of lovely, unfettered rotation with the beautiful Baluna Ceiling light.
This is a stunning pendant lamp with an aesthetic that’s two parts Modern and one part Steampunk. Perhaps best of all, it puts me in mind of a delicious black and white cookie.
Much of Baluna’s appeal lies in its Yin/Yang feel: the juxtaposition of opposites, the sense of creation present in the opal glass diffuser that appears to emerge from the powder-coated steel body.
On top of that, it’s a handcrafted piece—handblown, hand-welded, and hand-assembled. It also offers excellent versatility, as the glass diffuser “rotates around its axis indefinitely,” enabling users to put light in the desired locale.
Baluna also comes in a wall-mounted version.
