Nebulae Collection

Ross Gardam

The Nebulae Collection was inspired by the diffusion of both natural and LED light. It takes its name from the natural phenomena of interstellar clouds and their dynamic layered lighting effects. The geometric machined forms coupled with the fluid glass discs create balance between each of the elements.

Nebulae’s exploration of diffused light was a natural progression from Ross Gardam’s recent lighting collection, the Ora and Polar, which explore light reflection and shade. All of his briefs are self-initiated and for the Nebulae he wanted to create a large-format chandelier that allowed for modular connection to fill space.

Although the Nebulae uses a similar language to Ross Gardam’s previous collections, the final light output emitted has a very unique quality. The fluted glass of the Nebulae, even when not in use, has a beautiful motion to the glass elements, as they diffuse natural refractions with each other and the environment around them.

The Nebulae defines a new, functional and original form in decorative lighting. Each of the glass finishes embodies unique textures, whether ripples, bubbles, incandescent or geometric patterns. The inclusion of light combined with the layering of the glass finishes represents a highly original exploration of diffusion. Each of the new products in the collection has an exceptional quality, detailed refinement and precision, giving them a signature style.
