Spot evolved from the idea of reinterpreting the classic white glass globe into a playful, colourful and graphic new suspension light. During the glassblowing process, transparent and white spheres are rolled onto thin and small glass filaments of various colour tones, which stick to the sphere. The glass is then blown into a conventional wooden mould and the filaments stretch, creating random graphic patterns as well as optical and lighting effects. Spot come in four different finishes, with complete light fitting, adjustable in length, including a stainless steel cable system and ceiling rose.
