SFERA PORTABLE | Table lamp By BROKIS
LED blown glass table lamp with cement base
Sfera is a new rechargeable outdoor light that comes in two sizes. It is one of the latest additions to the BROKIS outdoor lighting portfolio. Sfera Portable is based on the idea of a small spheres of light set within a poured concrete base with the same subtle multiangular detail used throughout the Sfera family. The delicate sphere of handblown matte or gloss glass resides beneath a stainless-steel hoop, which serves as a handle for moving the light from one place to another. The concrete base houses not only the charging module but also a sensitive touch dimmer with which to adjust the brightness. Sfera Portable is fitted with an LED light source with diffusor and meets the safety and technological standards of the IP44 rating for outdoor use.
Handblown glass anchored in a raw, almost brutalist concrete base is an excellent match for modern architecture, but it can also be used to great effect when set in contrast with historical architecture. Sfera Portable is a stylish atmospheric lighting object designed for both outdoor and indoor use. Thanks to its simple construction, the light can be easily picked up and moved to change the ambience of any space.
The technologies applied in production follow in the centuries-old tradition and experience of master glassmakers. The precision crafting of handblown glass instils distinctive, enduring character and outstanding quality in all BROKIS products. The glass shades are formed from multiple layers of molten glass, each of which is scrutinized by the master glassmaker prior to being blown into the mould.
This phase of production is responsible for up to 70% of the resulting quality of the product. The triplex opal glass of the shades represents one of the finest materials in the lighting industry today. Together with carefully guarded handcraft techniques, the sandwich structure of two transparent outer layers of crystal and an inner layer of white opal between them lends the glass outstanding visual properties.
The concrete base is manufactured from HPC (high-performance concrete), which is more durable and resistant to moisture penetration than standard concrete and has enhanced surface qualities.
