GLOW 3

Glass Ø 200 x 260 mm

GLOW is a new collection inspired by the Inner Glow – a sculptural lighting piece designed in collaboration with French architect and designer Sophie Dries. This collection sees Inner Glow’s grandeur distilled into a more compact form suitable for the contemporary home.The designers’ choice of paper is an evolution of the papier-mâché process and has a raw, textural quality that resembles stone. The glass is custom-made for Kaia by an artisan glassmaker in Germany’s Bavarian forest with more than 400 years of experience creating one-of-a-kind pieces. Layered onto these mouth-blown glass eggs, the paper appears to ‘grow’ and take on a life of its own.

Process

Hand-blown glass

When working with glass, we source the glass from old family owned traditional businesses from Bavaria or the Czech Republic. Our Workshops are known for immaculate handcrafts and tradition. Each glass is blown by mouth, using KAIA’s own and unique carved moulds made from solid wood. Our exceptional hand-made glass can be offered in different complex shades such as smoky grey, crystal clear and ocean blue. For our custom projects, our glass artisans can accommodate many special requirements.

Metalwork

All our lighting objects are hand crafted in our Workshop in Austria, all made to order. Our chosen metal material, which is the basis of all metal shapes and plating process is brass. We work closely together with small, local and family owned Workshops in Austria, Germany and the United Kingdom. Each of them is a master in their own craftsmanship, being it welding, cutting, bending or finally plating the metal into its desired shape and finish. We firmly stand behind everything we make and will do what is necessary to ensure that we meet highest quality standards.
