Bohemian glass artisans, Brokis’ latest collections are a skilful blend of tradition and modernity.
Rooted in the remarkable craftsmanship of Bohemian glass-making, Czech lighting brand Brokis combines centuries-old artisanal traditions that have been passed from generation to generation, with a very modern point of view to deliver exception lighting experiences. Crafted from innovative materials and techniques, Brokis’ latest collections are part of a new wave in contemporary design where more and more brands are connecting craft and tech to explore new possibilities.
Paying homage to one of the traditional forms of Japanese lighting, the Bonbori collection created by world-renowned designer Fumie Shibata seeks inspiration from traditional paper lamps customary in Japanese festivals. The lamps are composed of multiple layers of carefully moulded glass illuminated with a warm glow emanating from a laser-cut, stainless steel core. Bonbori is Brokis’ first outdoor lighting collection.
BROKISGLASS is a new and versatile material composed of recycled glass shards that are usually discarded as production waste from Brokis’ lighting collections. The material brings a fresh dimension and aesthetic to glass - both in its application in interior and product design and as a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to traditional glass. BROKISGLASS was developed in collaboration with Janstein Glassworks and has been nominated for a Czech Grand Design Award.
Defined by its elongated form, these light fixtures surpass their primary function and allow for a playful composition of luminescent mosaics. Designed by Koris Klimk and Lenka Damova, the geometric collection is characterized by suspended circular and oval shapes rendered in black profiles and accentuated with distinctive BrokisGlass.
Night Birds Exterior Collection
The outdoor version of the Night Bird collection comes with a bigger, more robust body and minor modifications that update the playful and poetic indoor lighting collection for external use. Inspired by birds in flight, these eco-friendly light fixtures are delicately crafted from melted glass and polished aluminium.
