Description

Vienna’s legendary glass manufacturer, Lobmeyr invites Sperlein to add his signature to its extensive catalog and design legacy with a series of lights embodying Lobmeyr’s artisanal dexterity. The London-based designer creates the Script lights series giving a contemporary twist to the Viennese modernist design typography exemplified in Lobmeyr’s iconic collections.

Resulting from the collaboration between the Austrian glass blowing and metalsmithing studios, each piece is hand-crafted at the Lobmeyr workshop in Vienna. The fixtures are made of bent brass bars with mouth-blown crystal domes frosted on the inside. The lighting unit is an LED element that can be controlled and dimmed via DALI or with a mobile app via Bluetooth.

Sperlein’s fully versatile design concept offers a wide scope of customization possibilities, from the arrangement and extensions of the arms to their metal finishes.
