The MACARON table light, designed by BROKIS Art Director Lucie Koldova, pays homage to the beauty and complex structures of crystalline stone. Enclosed in opposing domes of delicate hand-blown glass, the stone becomes a moonscape afloat in its own cosmos. The light source casts its glow upward from the onyx base to energise the meandering chalcedony veins in the centre onyx plate and create a subtle and mesmerising lighting effect. The concept is based on the principle of illuminating stone, and the name refers to the light’s similarity in shape to the famed French meringue confection.
Natural imperfections in the glass and the diversity of structures in the stone make each light a unique original. The purity of the natural materials and the artisanship applied in processing them gives rise to a light of extraordinary ambience.
Produced using traditional techniques, MACARON is characteristic of the distinctive and enduring aesthetic of the BROKIS brand. MACARON comes in three sizes – the largest of which also makes an attractive floor light – and in several glass colour options with either white or honey onyx. The collection offers an alternate version featuring a centre plate made of fused glass shards in combination with a wooden base.
