When glass embodies paper
The ancient shape of the lantern, transformed by BOMMA and recast into glass, maintains its age-old symbolism of a messenger. The essential shape of the crystal Chinese lantern is replicated by hand-blowing into a wooden form. The resulting precise craft, despite its minimalist appearance, accentuates our prime devotion to traditional glassmaking principles in both top quality and perfect details. In their basic clear version, these lighting objects can be easily combined, forming random or even geometric groups. In smoke or white colors, Lantern adds soft ambient light to any interior.
