07/01/2020 - Beginning January 17, attendees of MAISON&OBJET
in Paris can visit the Czech lighting brand BROKIS
and experience firsthand a unique combination of exclusive design, outstanding quality, and the remarkable craftsmanship of master Bohemian glassblowers. The BROKIS lighting exhibition is located at Hall 6 – Stand M38/O37.
Dominating the exhibit is a special edition celebrating the introduction of the beloved Muffins collection ten years ago. MUFFINS 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
was designed by Lucie Koldova & Dan Yeffet
and features exotic wood such as mahogany, wenge, and palisander with optional gloss finish in combination with marble and glass of different colours. This special edition is making its world premiere at the Paris trade fair.
Another new collection for 2020 will also be on display – GEOMETRIC by Boris Klimek and Lenka Damová.
Geometric accentuates the aesthetic expression and structure of BROKISGLASS, which itself is remarkably distinctive. The collection is defined by basic geometric shapes that characterize the overall contours of the lights and instil them with a singular graphic element to achieve a striking contrast with the animate, almost sculptural makeup of the glass. The suspension components make up the glass geometric shapes, their edges rendered in black profiles.
The graphic aesthetics of the collection allow the lights to be arranged in a great number of final shapes – circle, oval, square – either as solitary lights or as a sort of jigsaw puzzle, which in the hands of architects can result in an endless variety of lighting combinations. Thus, the concept surpasses its primary function as a lighting fixture and opens the door to large-format blocks of light and other uncommon compositions. For the majority of the solitary lights, each side can be finished in glass of a different colour for even greater variability and originality.
Visitors to the BROKIS stand can find not only the brand’s iconic collections, such as the very popular BIG ONE,but can also see the new products that lit up 2019, like the IVY collection. With attractive organic lines that are irresistible to the eye, this versatile lighting object quickly became an integral component of the BROKIS presentation. Both these collections were created by Lucie Koldova.
Brokis, BIG ONE
This large-format light with matte core by designer Lucie Koldova embodies simplicity, purity, and balanced proportions. Key to the allure of the composition is the interaction between the two luminous bodies of glass.
Nature and its life-giving beauty and strength serve as the model for a unique lighting concept called IVY. Just as the plant grows and climbs up the walls of a house, creating multiple images, IVY offers a special system of modular components, thanks to which it can be used to achieve a highly innovative take on decorative lighting in both vertical and horizontal compositions.
The collection features three sizes in opal or smoke glass. Variable, elegant, and precise in workmanship all the way down to the smallest detail, IVY is a high-tech lighting concept well suited to both commercial and residential applications. In intimate home settings, for example, a single elegant branch can be used, or multiple branches can be joined to create a curtain of light. IVY has many forms and justly takes its place among artistic, so-called bespoke, lighting installations.
Brokis, PURO ECLECTIC
Visitors can also experience firsthand the lighting collection that won the Archiproducts Design Awards 2019
– PURO ECLECTIC.
The suspension light is made up of the handblown glass tubes of the PURO collection, and its mission is to provide a simple yet excitingly dynamic and expressive composition primarily intended for installation above dining tables. The name ‘Eclectic’ is based on the variously positioned, interconnected diagonal tubes and captures the essence of this striking object by BROKIS art director Lucie Koldova. PURO ECLECTIC is on display in Paris in both black and white variants.
BROKIS is showcasing other lights from its portfolio as well.
