With Bulb, Danish light artist Sofie Refer lit up the new millennium and a new classic was blown. The shape refers to the first electrical light bulbs by using thick transparent glass. Sofie Refer continues an elegant Nordic tradition, adding her own passion and femininity. The small irregularities in the mouth blown glass make each of the pendants one of a kind and add the story of the glass master’s personal efforts in changing sand, soda and chalk into a modern classic using a thousand year old method.
Sofie Refer believes that lighting is the most crucial and powerful aspect of any environment. Soon after graduating from Denmark's Design School in 2003, she opened her Copenhagen-based lighting design and production company Refer + Staer, where she is Partner and Creative Director. Her simple, streamlined designs have garnered her numerous awards, appearing in the private and commercial sector, such as restaurants, hotels, nightclubs and city councils worldwide.
Driven by a passion to find new ways to play with light, Refer uses the latest technology to create designs which signal Scandinavian simplicity with a touch of extravagance.
