Unika is a mouth blown series of small glass pendant lamps, originally designed for the Restaurant Grønbech and Churchill in Copenhagen.
Its simple base is made of solid brass; a detail that gives the lamp a clean, industrial look, making a sharp contrast to the fragile, handmade glass lamp shade. The shade is available in two sizes: 135 mm and 200 mm (height), and hangs from a twisted black fabric wire.
Varied thicknesses and imperfections in the glass add a subtle honesty to this object, as well as a distinct, warm glow to the lamp. Lit or unlit, the fixture adds elegance and lightness to any room. The Unika series is suited for both commercial and private interior spaces.
