Kandinsky 30 Broberg & Ridderstråle (2019)
Powerful artistry in balance.
Kandinsky – powerful artistry in balance
Kandinsky is inspired by the abstract circle paintings from the artist of the same name, created during his time at the Bauhaus school in the 1920s. A sphere and a spear play the main characters in the lamp’s composition, piercing each other in mid-air. The delicate balance of the two elements evokes a dramatic sensation of weightlessness and precision but also fragility.
The custom-made light source is shaped and fitted seamlessly as part of the glass sphere. Emitting its glow from the middle of the hand-blown smoked glass, the lamp is dimmable to set mood in a space. Kandinsky comes in two sizes, with a 30 or 45 cm wide glass sphere. It hangs powerfully on its own, above a table or feature design element, or as a group, to cast its soft, diffused light over a larger space.
The Kandinsky collection is designed by the Stockholm-based creative collaborators Broberg & Ridderstråle. They strive to add an emotional value to their designs that communicates with the users through recognition of symbols and meanings. They often draw inspiration from everyday life and try to combine a rational approach with a bit of wit and the clash between past and present.
