Sebastian Wrong is Right About Filigrana
The British designer created a new candy-cane light for Established & Sons, based on a rather sweet Murano glass technique
It might have the look of a sweet and easy striped confectionery, but Sebastian Wrong’s Filigrana light is actually a technical feat.
Named Filigrana, the new suspension lights for British brand Established & Sons is made with a technique that dates back to sixteenth-century Italy. The method, which creates a candy-cane pattern on the surface of each shade in the series, originated in Murano.
Through this convergence of traditional craftsmanship and technical mastery, each mouth-blown piece ends up being unique, with an acid-etched surface that creates a soft, diffused light through the red, brown and white stripes. It ends up being an even softer, even more tantalising version of Brach’s Starlight Peppermint bites.
It is, almost literally, eye candy.
